Random Encounters

Last night we were up in Nowon coming home from a friends Half-Birthday. When we were leaving we decided to cut through the park. On the way we passed a lovely pagoda made even more lovely by the group of college students playing guitar and singing songs. On the off chance that you don't know, we LOVE singing. So we, naturally, wandered over to say hello. We chatted for a bit and they confessed that when they saw a group of foreigners they started playing louder in an effort to bring us over. They were all friends from Middle and High School, all currently attending different colleges. There was a business major, a tenor singer, a Poet, a guitar player, a computer programmer. They were quite an eclectic group. We sang with them for about a half an hour and then continued on our way home. What a great way to end a great night!

Flowers from Students

For Christmas Jamie gave me a desktop flowerpot. It was supposed to grow a sunflower. It sprouted and grew 4 leaves but then, before it even really surpassed the lip of the pot it died. A few of my students were following my plant's progress and we were all sad when it died. Yesterday I came back to my office and one of my students revived the flower pot with flowers from the school garden! They can be so thoughtful!
