Flag of Korea Rep.  ,
Wednesday, November 5, 2008

This morning I woke up around 9am.  Donna, Tim, and I went for a 3 mile jog around the area where they live.  It was really nice to see the leaves changing color again, that is something that I miss when living in Texas.  Later in the morning, Donna and Tim had to teach , so I watched some Korean TV and waited for Katie to come over.  She was going to be my chaperone for the day, haha.
We took a brief tour of the English Village.  It is actually quite big.  Each teacher gets his/her own dorm which is decently sized. If you come to the village with a spouse or boyfriend/girlfriend you get to room with them if you choose.  There are also dorms for all of the kids in the various overnight programs.  We then took a tour of the classrooms and some of the other places in the village like the gym and sport field.  All in all it seems like a really nice place, but it is really in the middle of nowhere, but at least you get to see the leaves change.

Later in the morning during Donna and Tim's break we made pancakes and I learned that South African pancakes are a lot thinner than the American style, but still very good.  After pancakes, Donna and Tim had to go back to work so Katie and I watched American Gangster since she's never seen it.  We only made it through half of the movie because Katie had to run some errands.  In the meantime, I bummed around the place just watching TV and did some more exploration of the village.  Later that day, Katie and I took a walk into town which was about a 15 minute walk to buy dinner for everyone.  This was the first time that I have had Korean food since being back in the country and I really missed it.  They put a certain spice in their food that you just can't find anywhere...

After everyone got off of work around 9pm, Donna, Tim, and I went to play ultimate Frisbee at their sport field.  I played surprisingly well considering that I've never really played ultimate before.

After Frisbee Donna, Tim, Katie, Andrea, and a few other people stopped over to Donna's place to play apples to apples.  This was my first time playing this game but it was a lot of fun.  The night ended around 11:30 as everyone had to get up relatively early to go to work the next day....the end.
