Things I will miss about Korea

Everything. Even though there were things I didn’t like about Korea, there are definitely a lot of things I will miss about Korea. 1. Davinci Coffee, my favorite coffee shop. I loved their hot chocolate, brownies, cookies, and ciabatta sandwiches. I used to meet my small group there every week, and the shops are conveniently […]

Things I don’t like about Korea

A little over a month ago, I wrote about how difficult it can be to move to a different country. This is sort of a follow-up post. It’s interesting to hear what it’s like for a foreigner in the US. A week ago, a friend on Facebook posted an article called “16 People On Things […]

Be gentle.

7 months ago I packed my bags and headed to a land that I knew nothing about. And I most certainly didn’t know the language. I learned how to say hello before I left, and that was about it. I didn’t learn the Korean alphabet until after I arrived. Koreans love seeing foreigners, and a […]

Dalseong Park

I meant to write about this when it happened (about a month ago), but I totally forgot about it until now. We took the Kindergartners to the park for a picnic. It was mentioned that it was also a zoo, so I assumed it would be a really small zoo that had a few farm […]

Today I let them draw in their sketchbooks. I’ve only let them draw in their sketchbooks a couple times, and every time […]

Red Light District

On Saturday night, I had the opportunity to go on a prayer walk with my church in the red light district of Daegu. If you don’t know, the red light district is an area in a city where there’s a lot of prostitution. In Korea, sex trafficking isn’t something that’s really talked about. I guess […]

I like nature

Nature is pretty cool. Here’s some pictures of nature in Korea. Most of these pictures were taken at Suseong Lake on Saturday afternoon. The last three were taken on the field trip to Daegu Stadium. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted, but I plan to post a lot this week. But only once […]

Daegu Stadium

Today we had a field trip to the Daegu Stadium (previously called World Cup stadium). The World Cup was held here in 2002, and the 2011 world championships for track & field were also held here. Before we left for the stadium, the kids colored Easter eggs. When we went to the stadium, some teachers […]
