I came back from Korea last Friday.
Our schedule was very busy during the last two weeks. We went many field trips and participated a lot of activities. I think my favorite field trip was to Everland, which is a theme park near Seoul. The firework was great.
On the last day of KSSP, we had a graduation ceremony. I made a lot of friends there, so it was hard to leave.
