Yesterday we had a choice of three hikes. Caroline and I chose the easiest and Daniel, Mike, and Karen chose the hardest. They went to Ulsanbawi Rock and we hiked to Biryong Waterfall and then took the cable car up the mountain. We had some free time left so we also strolled the grounds of the main area of the park and saw a giant Buddha statue and Sinheungsa Temple. That night we checked into our hotel, ate a delicious bulgogi dinner, and drank and sang at the local noraebang.
Today we went on another hike, starting from our hotel. It also went to a waterfall but Daniel and I were tired and more into taking photos than hiking so we turned around after about an hour. Then we explored the small town we stayed in, ate lunch, and headed back to civilization.
Oh yeah, near where we went is Samcheok Haesindang Park aka “The Penis Park” so on the way home we saw lots of interesting statues and such at the gift shop…
Here is a photo from the first Burger King “English lunch” with my students.
We made “bug masks” in Fun Science this week.
The cat has been driving me slightly crazy. I was in a really shitty mood on Friday because Bella had kept me awake for five nights (meowing and trying to get in the now child-proofed kitchen cabinets and drawers). Also she has been puking nightly, which her previous owner neglected to tell us happens “sometimes” until she dropped the cat off. Then she puked four times under the bed Friday evening and I was so pissed. But she finally let me sleep through the night Friday so we’ll see if she gets better about that. I hope so. I want to keep her but I need my sleep damnit!
Happy 75th birthday to my grandmother! My family threw a party for her this weekend in Celebration, FL. I wish I had been there! Love you Grandma, one of my loyal readers!
