Spring has sprung in Seoul!

Seoulites enjoyed a beautiful spring weekend. The weather was perfect for sightseeing, hiking, or just relaxing outdoors. Here are a few photos I've taken recently. To the left, cherry blossoms bloom around KBS.

Enjoying some street food in Hongdae, Seoul. Saturday was warm enough to shed the coat and scarf and hit the streets under sunny skies. My favorite--chicken on a stick!

I love the city. You never know what you'll see next. Don't let the bunny ears fool you, this guy was all business as he cruised past Hongik University. He wouldn't even smile for the camera.

Bikers take a break in Yeouido park Monday morning.

Street food hits Yeouido Park!

Korea is famous for its cherry blossoms. They came out in full force over the weekend.

What do you think about Koreans in general? I'm interested to hear your opinions on the race. haha. I'm getting addicted to your blog, Abby.

Hi Abby,
Thanks for the e-mail giving me the heads-up that you would be reading my e-mail on the air today. I'm glad you liked my photos. I also like your pictures of spring in Seoul. It looks like you found a good, yellow dust-free day! Washington, DC and Seoul are almost at the same latitude, and we seem to have similar seasons (well, if you don't count "Yellow Dust" and Monsoon seasons...)
I'm not much of a Blog reader, but I enjoy your images and perspectives on life in Korea. Take care!
