Yesterday, October 1st was Chinese National Day. The People’s Republic of China was founded on October 1st 1949 and later that year the government declared October 1st to be the National Day.
I celebrated National by enjoying a delicious feast cooked by three of my wonderful Chinese friends at my apartment.
National Day marks the beginning of the National Day Golden Week across China. Golden week is a seven day long vacation. Traveling and shopping are two very popular ways for the Chinese to celebrate Golden Week. Since we have the week off from classes and teaching Maggie and I decided that we would do the traveling thing and go to South Korea for Golden Week. We will be leaving Wednesday morning from the local airport and will be flying into Seoul, South Korea! I am so excited!! I can’t wait to tell you all about our trip!
