For my school's 60th birthday celebration, it was a 2-day affair, and my camera and iPhone got a huge work-out with photographs and videos. I've uploaded all the videos to YouTube and edited them, which takes a very long time. And I know that you can believe this....I took TONS of pictures. I am one of those people that wants to remember everything. I love blogging, but adding a lot of pictures takes time, so please be patient! Unfortunately, you might have a wait a couple of days. I'm meeting friends for Mexican food tonight, I have an overnight teacher's trip tomorrow night and all day Saturday, and a friend is spending the night on Saturday night. Like I said....busy bee!
I did find a couple of pictures from the other night that I wanted to share.
|Selling fruit and vegetables. They are so expensive here since nothing grows in Korea.|
|On the bus going home with my co-teacher. They were playing Chicago. My co-teacher thought it was funny that I knew all the words and sang along.|
|Korean BBQ right in my neighborhood|
|My street at night. See, it's well lit!|
In Korea, a school's birthday is a big deal. My school is celebrating its 60th birthday this year. The 60th birthday is HUGE in Korea. Classes were basically canceled for 2 days so that we could celebrate. I've never experienced anything like this before, and it was an incredible experience. I can't wait to tell you all about it!
Here are some Instagram pictures I took with my iPod from the big birthday celebration! It was a blast! You will see MANY more later. :)
At our cooking competition:
|Yummy rice dish. This was SO good. I walked around taking pictures, people would hand me food asking me to try it. So, I did! "Oh, Angela. Try this." "Angela, eat this."|
|Really good spicy dish|
|People would bring you food from their group and just plop it right onto your food. The dumpling thing was from another group, and it was so good.|
One last picture with one of my students, Eunji, who is in my Middle School 3 class (around 9th grade).
See you in a few days! Be prepared for tons of photos!
