My co-worker Irene got married this month! Her wedding was complete with traditionally dressed family iwearing hanbok, a special bride's display room, and a laser-light show. Needless to say, the other foreigner teachers and I had a great time!

This is from the tour I took, in late September, of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) that is located along the boarder of North and South Korea. I am so thankful I got a chance to go before the missile strikes. Despite that fact, I was still incredibly nervous, considering that it is one of the most highly militarized areas on Earth. Please pray that everything stays peaceful between the North and the South!

It was such a nice warm evening when my friends and I arrived by train to Seoul, during the Korean Chuseok Holiday, in September. I was instantly stunned at the crazy-fast pace at which the city was humming and by the outstanding pristine-ness of the city (no graffiti). It felt like I was in the future! We had a bit of an adventure just locating our hostel and oddly happened upon a little alleyway lined with little traditional Korean houses, wedged in between the skyscrapers. Strangely enough, this alley was also the location of our hostel.

It was lovely day, at Haeundae Beach in mid-October, when a bunch of fish decided to commit suicide by jumping out of the water onto the sand....strange! But, we did our best to help some kids try to save their lives before a flock of seagulls finished them off.

Halloween at Kids Club was really fun! All of us teachers turned the school into a carnival and decorated each room with a different game and theme. The other foreigner teachers and I even built a haunted house that scared some kids so bad, they cried and one kid so bad, he peed!
