St. Patrick's Day Celebration

Nicholas worked with a friend of the Irish Ambassador to Korea in Geneva and after a few email exchanges, we were invited to the Embassy of Ireland's St. Patrick's Day Celebration. It was held at a beautiful hotel in the middle of Seoul with a gorgeous view of the city at night.

We had a great time celebrating the patron saint while enjoying some Irish brew and incredible food. The ambassador and his Irish-American wife were wonderful and introduced us to many people. Talk about a small world, they introduced us to one of Nicholas' soon-to-be GSG colleagues, Kevin, and his wife! Kevin is Irish and his wife is French. His wife knew me from the FB group that was created for all the partners and a recent post that I had wrote. We had a good time getting to know each other and sharing stories about our experiences so far. 

With the IMD guys who are in his work group and other IMD folk who just live in Seoul, as well as the GSG guys and their partners, we are starting to feel right at home!
