Natural History Museum

While this museum was a bit of a bust (everything in Korean and eye-level was around 3 feet), I got some pretty sweet detail shots, if I do say so myself.

Devon + Jeremy

Didn't get too many photos of these two while they were here visiting last week but I like this one. For those of you who may not know her, Devy Devs is my oldest good friend - my neighbor/best friend in Houston from four onward.

So glad they were able to visit after their one month architecture trip to Japan...I'm still reeling from that last meal...mmmmm.

Joan's Garden

Our co-teacher Joan had Helen, Chellcy and I over to her beautiful house for 물냉면 (Naengmyeon) last week. It was special for several reasons but maybe the most significant was that we were at a house in Seoul. This is almost unheard of as everyone here lives in apartment complexes. Her mother's garden and goldfish pond were beautiful and the cold noodle soup was delightful.

A Ribbon Reflector...

Helen, Jasmine and I decorated construction worker reflector vests for a concert (King Khan & BBQ Show) we were REALLY pumped about...alas the band did not play due to internal conflicts (apparently King Khan met a monk and decided to leave his life of hedonism) and we didn't have a show to go to.

We spent the rest of the night making up stories as to why we were wearing said reflector vests...the best story came from Jasmine (in my humble opinion): "We are a team of Mathletes from M.I.T. and in Korea only for the weekend to smoke the math pants off of some Koreans."  Honorable Mention: "We were referees for a Special Olympics soccer game earlier that day." (Bet you can guess who made that one up...).

Regardless...Helen and I had more fun modeling them the night before we donned them out in Hongdae...
