We had a farewell dinner at a fancy restaurant in Insadong last night. It was traditional Buddhist temple food, and was founded by a former monk. There was also a performance at a stage in the centre of the restaurant, featuring several traditional Korean dances and drumming. It's probably the last time everyone in our program will be together, so it was kind of sad, but still fun.
Afterwards a few of us walked to city hall via a walk along a stream, which was surrounded on both sides by colourful Christmas lights. It was the first time it really felt like december to me.
At city hall they had an ice rink set up, which was free to use, and cost 1000 won for skate rental. So most of us hit the ice; snow was falling in puffy flakes, it was such an ideal night. We then split off again, and I went back to the dorm with the other girls, having a nice adventure finding a bus to take us there around midnight.
