Went out for a picnic yesterday afternoon to one of the few parks (I think there are only two) in Yanji. It was a beautiful day. We got kimbap (traditional Korean picnic food-rice and other stuff wrapped in seaweed like a sushi roll) and some snacks and drinks and just talked. Very nice. Somehow, it was our first time to make it to this park. That's a shame.
This is the park, shown with paddleboats in the foreground, big buildings and pollution in the background.
Tonight, I'm taking a night train to Meihekou to visit the hometown of a student friend. I'm coming straight back the next evening so that I can meet my sister and brother in law on Wednesday morning at the Yanji airport! Yay!
