voices that did comfort me are furthest from my sanity

Last weekend Heather and I went to the 63 builiding on Yeioudo Island here in Seoul. It was a lot of fun! It is the tallest building in Korea. We went up to the top and got an amazing view of Seoul and the Han River. We also went to the basement of the 63 building which has a Sea World aquarium. That was fun. They had this crazy mermaid show, with an evil queen, a princess and a mermaid (or a girl snorkeling in a tank) It was pretty funny. There was one scary moment in the aquarium, though. Heather and I walked into one of the rooms and there was a little girl with a snake around her neck getting her picture taken. I FREAKED out. I was so freakin close to that thing. I just ran our of the room. It was pretty to funny... to Heather! 

We also took a paddle boat shaped like a duck out onto the Han River! That was really fun! The cherry blossoms are blooming and they are beautiful! We had a really nice Saturday! This weekend is Chinchu and Jen's birthday celebration, so that should be a lot of fun. Well, here are some pictures from the weekend!

don't be confused, the way is clear

Hi everyone!

Just to let you know, I am doing 100% better! My energy is back and I feel really good! I'm still just a little slow going up and down stairs. 

So, Heather only has 2 weeks left in Korea. I am really sad that she will be gone... but I am super excited that my friend Brad will be her replacement! I met Brad during my sophomore year of college and we have been really good friends ever since. He will love Korea and I am very excited to see him again! 

I am also really excited that I have a vacation coming up! Katie, Jen and I are leaving on May 1 to the Philippines!  We are flying into Manilla and spending the night there and the next day we will head to Boracay Island for a few days! I am really looking forward to some beach time! The worst part is that we get back into Seoul at 5:00 a.m. Wednesday morning and we all have to work at 10:00 a.m. Wednesday won't be the easiest day, but well worth it I imagine!

We went to a baseball game last Saturday and that was a lot of fun! There were 11 of us who went and it was so cool. The game was good and our team (the Doosan Bears) won 7-5. We were a little sad by the food selection, though. Instead of hotdogs and nachos we had a selection of kimbap, dried squid or fish soup. Gross! We know next time to bring some goodies with us!

Well, I will have a lot to write about in the upcoming weeks because we will be so busy! I hope everyone has a great Easter! I will miss being there and seeing the babies looking for eggs. Oh, and Easter dinner of course! I love you all!
