22) New Years Eve

For New Years Eve I joined with a group of 16 other people renting a pension (hotel style living) for the night. We all arrived around 7:00pm and had dinner together. When we returned to the pension we celebrated the way we normally would in our respective countries… by drinking and watching the count down to the new year. (Rather than drop a ball, Korea has a big bell that they ring. This is not a big holiday for Koreans, they celebrate the Lunar New Year in February in their traditional way.) New Years Day was snowy and windy but it all melted quickly. I only have a few pictures from the night since there were so many people and conversations.

Dinner and drinks.

The restaurant’s dog.

A friend brought her dog to the pension. (The pension had three bedrooms, one large main room, a kitchen, and two bathrooms.)

I’m in the bottom corner.



This is the most snow that Jeju has had. It was all melted by the next day. Such a nice change from Buffalo!
