La Vie En Rose | Garden Festival

Last week Korea was gripped in an obscene panic due to MERS. I was off from school closings and reading a lot of bad news on the internet. My solution? Ignore it and hop on the subway to the 2015 Rose Garden Festival which is inside Seoul Grand Park. This was my first jaunt out this way save for a few years ago when I visited the MMCA museum in the area. Just on the outskirts of the big city of Seoul, the park is surrounded by mountains and (hopefully) fresh air. The place was surprisingly big.

|Lush| Bouquet

For Teacher’s Day the mom’s of my students got my coteacher and I two huge bouquets of flowers because they are sweet, generous ladies.

He’d eat everything colorful and green in the world. He’d spill it all over the floor and rub his fat body around in the mess. He just loves them.  So I needed to break down the bouquet into more manageable parts. They make just as beautiful little bouquets as it did the huge one.
