This year the holiday is smack dab in the middle of the week, but that has not stopped many people from stretching this into a nine-day vacation.
It is a six-day vacation for me. Don’t have to teach on Friday. Sounds great doesn’t it? Too bad a lot of the country will be “closed” for the duration of this holiday. All the usual places I go for food will be closed for two-three days. Of course, HomePlus is open as is Mickey D’s there.
Better to hunker down at home than having to mess with crowded bus terminals like Seoul Express Bus Terminal (above) and crowded highways. It was bad enough having to fight the crowds at HomePlus–kind of like how it would be on a Sunday a week or two before Christmas.
It’s also a sloppy holiday this year–it’s been raining on and off most of the day.
