안녕하세요? Greetings from Seoul, South Korea!

안녕하세요! Annyeonghaseyo! Which means hello in Korean language.

Hi, I’m Leopold Ringbom from Finland and I’m studying Electrical engineering in Finland and also here in Soongsil University, Seoul, South Korea where I run my Student Exchange. I made really big mistake because I choose to be here just one semester. I been now here already 3 moths and last month just started. It seems that I would not have had time to do anything yet although I have traveled and go around South Korea a lot. If you have possible to be here at South Korea more than one semester, be more than one semester!

Here at Seoul the local culture is very nice and best thing here is FOOD! You have to go and taste everything. For me the best one was Korean barbecue (picture is below). And if you are coming here to South Korea take one Korean Language course because local people like very much when you speak or at least try to speak Korean language.

Here are some pictures. Enjoy!
