“Winter make us a great family. Study together, walk together, eat tougher, drink together, laugh together, togetherness make us feel warm in cold weather.”

The beauty of snow enchanted all of us. We do not have such beautiful yet freezing thing back then in Indonesia. Gazing the white snow falling from the sky boosted up our excitement in the first day of our arrival in South Korea. Even before the event started, this exploding excitement make two of our member get lost due to the confusing MRT system. But people in South Korea are kind, and much thanks to the body language that helped them a lot to found their way back.

Day 1 (14 January 2013)

We arrived in Seoul when the temperature was around -7 degree Celsius. We stayed at a guest house in Hongdae, after lunch we had an orientation of our program for the whole week, each student introduce their self, and we talked about a lot of things. We were separated into 4 groups consisting student from South Korea and Indonesia for facilitate at this program. The welcome party was held in a restaurant which served Korean traditional food. Then we went to small hill at Hyewa, we climbed together in cold weather to see Seoul city from highland, it’s our first wonderful night.

I remember that I tasted Korean fish cake because I really like it most..
