These past 3 weeks have been awwwwwful crazy! We have reached a point in our transition where we are settling down and getting used to Korea. It's no longer odd to get waved at by random little kids, or for the old lady at the convenient mart to tell me I have pretty eyes, or for random old ladies to point at my belly say "cutee-ah", and the sheer fright of riding in a bus or taxi has subsided. It's gotten easier to converse with the kids and the phrase TIK (This is Korea!) has taken on a whole new meaning to us. Now, I am at a crossroads where the novelty of being in a new country has worn off and the realization that being a foreigner that will never blend in has consumed me. My sense of adventure and awestruck has diminished and it saddens me that I'm starting to get into a routine... BUT these are all things that can be turned around!!!
So, here are some pictures from the past several weeks

Outside of our little Gwangju English Village lies a farming community. For the past several weeks we've been watching the adjumma's and emu's hard at work. One day the fields were muddy and empty, the next week they were covered with plastic wrap, the next week they were flooded with water, until low and behold....

At Gwangju English Village we see different kids everyday. We work more like a camp program where kids come for the day and go to our different booths. We have the following booths: Furniture Shop, Art Gallery, Fire Station, Police Station, Hamburger Shop, Supermarket, Casino, Clinic, Hairshop, Costume Shop, Book Shop, Sports Center, Post Office, Bank, and Airport. Every month we do seasonal booths as well. Here are some photos taken while "working"
|How small is this little bugger!?!?!|
|Yeah, these kids were tiny, but had better English abilities |
than some Americans I know. Watch out world!
