Yesterday was the first time since our arrival in Seoul that the temperature was below 70 degrees F (21 degrees C). I have to admit that it was quite a shock to my system as somehow I have gotten used to the perpetual 80-90 F degree weather. The weather was warm and comfortable on Saturday while we were on the retreat. On Sunday it cooled considerably and I even wore long sleeves outside in the evening (we experienced real wind for the first time here on Sunday), but it was still surprising how cool it was yesterday morning when we left for school. Even more surprising was the fact that it didn't warm up much throughout the day, and it was still a bit chilly when we went out for our fire drill yesterday afternoon (at least it wasn't raining!). It's back to sun and mid-70s for the rest of the week, so it should be comfortable for us. After weeks and weeks of sweating while just standing still outside (and it's rare that we're actually standing still), we're excited for the cooler weather! Soccer practices in the afternoon heat have been brutal, and since we have another jamboree this weekend, I won't mind the cooler weather on Saturday!
The leaves have begun to fall, Everland was decked out with Halloween decor, and the temperatures are dropping: Fall has arrived in Seoul! We are excited to experience a new season in this new country!
