monday, may 16.
here are few more photos from mama jeri's may visit:
[on the parade street, before the sun went down.]
[previously mentioned lantern parade]
[cutest mom ever!!]
the coolest part about the lantern festival? mama and i walked in it at the very end!! ^__^ hehe it was really fun. here is a short clip from my camera, seconds before my card filled up:
the next day, we went to gyeongbokgung palace.
the weekend after mama j left, a few knp teachers, a few new canadian friends, and i went out to eat live octopus [again]. [okay, okay, i didn't eat it this time ... last september, i had enough squirmy bits in my mouth (cough, cough, only one...) to last me for a good while!]
gaelan and justin, the only non-knp people here in these photos, are traveling seoul for 30 days. they were brave enough to come along for the live octopus adventure.
oh, and poor justin ... we may or may have not harassed him about looking like jacob black [taylor lautner]
[you should have seen him when i first met him! his shoulder length hair made him look like jacob black even more so!]
anyway, here is some live octopus eating action, round 2:
this past weekend was a pretty laid back weekend for me. it is now hot enough outside to wear shorts!
so, naturally, my fat american legs made an appearance.
i went to one of my favorite coffee shops here in my neighborhood called salon du parc.
[i ate my usual, a balsamic vinegar vegetable sandwich accompanied by a peach honey yogurt smoothie.]
kaitee and i met up at olympic park and tossed back a few bottles of soj before going out to galbi with a few of the knp teachers.
[i tried stealing some modeling tips from kaitee, but just ended up teaching her the staple korean pose instead ;]]
i asked kaitee to pretend like i wasn't there, so i could get candid shots of her beautiful face.
well, that was the past few weekends of my life here in seoul. i'll keep you updated!
lovelovelove from korea <3
oh, and on an ending note ... remember how i told you korean couples dress to match? well, apparently they never grow out of it:
