Happy Valentine's Day!
Korea, the country that loves love, hearts, pink, and stationery, does not have Valentines, so I made my own.

This is a shot in the hospital that brought me back to my first night here. They wanted me to use that weird contraption in the back as some sort of walker to get to and from the bathroom. Finally, after I fell the second time, they gave me crutches. Much better!

Sweet Potatoes

One of our favorite snacks: roasted sweet potatoes! They're really delicious without butter, marshmallows, or salt. Who would have guessed?

Ramen Seasoning?
Originally uploaded by oneglassslipper

I got a little excited to see what looks like the same seasonings as are in my favorite ramen. I don't want to bring home hundreds of packages of ramen, so I wondered if it was purchasable by itself...

Kate with no hair. (And good bye, Mel!)

Kate with hair. (And maybe Chris's hat.)

February 6th

It still amazes me how well bus drivers know their boundaries with their vehicles. This is taken from about 3 feet away in my own bus.

February 5th

Really, this week was filled with good byes and a lot of drinking so... the next few pictures may be a bit redundant. This picture demonstrates the Bamboo Soju. They pour soju into bamboo stalks and let them absorb each other's flavors. It's delicious.

Flags & Sky

I just thought it was kind of neat.

February 3rd

I'm not joking when I say we have a hundred side dishes with every meal! Here we have kimchi, squid salad, zucchini, cucumber, radish, mushrooms, beans, fish, salad, acorn pudding... and other mystery items.

Can you eat salad with chopsticks? Because Cindy and I can.

Ivy Chandelier

This is the chandelier in the entryway to kindergarten. I tried taking a cool picture like my buddy James, and while it's kind of interesting, I just so much prefer pictures of my kids...

I haven't had comments forwarded to my e-mail, so I didn't know people were leaving me love notes. Thanks, guys! And MamaB, you can upload pictures directly from Flickr to your blog! It's one less excuse not to update... Haha. GL with Project 12!

Vendor & Fish Candy
Originally uploaded by oneglassslipper

I played a game to win this candy. I hope it's just shaped like a fish.

Double-decker bike, anyone?

View from Oz David's, originally uploaded by oneglassslipper.

The view from David's apartment. He lives on the 12th floor, and it amazes me how I traded 14,000+ foot mountains for mountains of 14+ story apartment buildings.

New Cellphone Cover, originally uploaded by oneglassslipper.

I got a new case for my cell phone--pink! Note the background: coffee, and the title: Kate-uhh.

Squatter, originally uploaded by oneglassslipper.

In Korea, before they westernized, the toilets looked like this. You're supposed to squat over them.

6 months, no squatter, only 6 more to go!
