Blogging from Seoul
Well, it’s not only me who is so much concerned about the ongoing issues of North Korea when the rest of the world’s attention is also on North Korea. These days almost every main headline from the measure news media is about North Korea. Every day I check the facebook group of nepali people in south korea, people are talking about it. Some of them have said that they are leaving the country soon and some of them have said they have already left and some of them have said- they are not afraid because they are the sons of Brave Gorkhali My daily chores consist one more routine now- to check the news on North Korean issues. However, I don’t find a single difference in people’s lives even in the time when every other news is all about the possible war on Korean peninsula. Life is going as usual and my email inbox are filled with the invitation and confirmation messages from organizations and friends for the scheduled programs.
You will find it interesting – when I talked about the ongoing issue with my Korean friend, she said that if –“North Korea attacks south then one Giant Robert will come out from the Han River and he will save South Korea”. I know she said it jokingly but it also shows the other part that they have been used to these threats and all from a long time.
Besides this, this is the time to see the beautiful Seoul blossoming all along with the cherries. Ah! I have been so occupied with the political issue that the pictures of cherries don’t even come to my mind : P It really feels like heaven in this season as the cherries has already been decorating the city. We have scheduled to take a glimpse of Cherry blossom next week being indifference to the continuing threat from North Korea. I will update you soon with the hope that things goes all right.
