We still have no Internet in our new house so I am making this post from good ol' Freebell. I start at my new job tomorrow and it is looking pretty good. I got to borrow the texts the other teacher uses and they seem pretty simple and filled with Disney (this weeks characters are Lilo and Stitch!) I am going to be spending the next 2 days watching the other teacher and then I take over officially on Thursday. I will definitely make some posts to let you know how my first few days go.
ALSO, we found hockey night in Japan! Monday nights a bar in Nagoya plays hockey. We may go check it out tonight. It will be the first real hockey game I have seen allll year! Wooo!
Ok, moving on to the rest of our Korean Adventure. During our last night there we just kind of wandered around and ended up in this strange little alcove that was having some sort of Andy Warhol tribute. The place was so cool and funky and so we wandered a bit and enjoyed the decorations. I did some shopping and then we stopped off for an awesome meal! I swear...Korean food is sooooooo cheap! Agh...I still can't get over it. I wish I had some Korean food like...right now. Anyways, here are some pictures from that crazy corner of Korea:
I particularly like this one:
Note the Neon green and pink horse in the background:
I loved these guys. I tried to get Ian to give them a hug but he wouldn't. He claimed there was a do not touch sign but I think he was just intimidated by their wily good looks.
These last few pictures are from the day we left. We had enough time to browse through the Korean History Museum and it was probably one of the most impressive museums I have ever seen. It is this massive structure that looks like a piece of art itself. I tried to get some good shots of it, but it was too big and nothing was doing it justice. Instead these will have to suffice. Ian's video may be better.
Ok! Good bye Korea Hello new home!!
Oh - one last thing. I think leaving Nova was the best thing in terms of making Japanese friends! Suddenly we have people taking us places, throwing us parties, inviting us to their houses...its craziness!! And I love it!
Anyways, good bye for now!
Lots of love
