October in Korea


It's hard to believe that we've been here over a month. In some ways it feels like we've been here a long time and in others it feels like we just arrived. Our weeks really fly by. We're so busy at the school each day that we never have time to stop. So it's 7pm before we know it and time to go home again! We're starting to get a better handle on being teachers and are controlling our classrooms with more authority. Now I can sympathize with all my girlfriends from back home who are teachers!

This is a Korean meal at a restaurant in an area called Gangnam. It was a hot soup with lots of different types of mushrooms, greens, pumpkin and onions. We're starting to learn that food here is either pretty spicy or bland. This was a dish that was sort of bland. At least we had lots of vegetables with it though. Usually our vegetables with Korean food consist of only different types of Kimchi.

The following photos are just a bit of what the shopping experience is like on the streets in Seoul. You can buy about anything from a street vendor. Food, clothes, drinks, shoes, jewelry, underwear...

Headbands

Dog Outfits

Cell Phone Trinkets

Earrings

Shoes
