Why is it that some days just turn out to be wonderful?

Today started with a nice Skype chat with Kev's parents... Then I headed off to school for Stella's kimbap making class with the 6th graders. I arrived about 20 minutes early, so I decided to walk up to the Insane Assylum to get a closer look at the building and to see if I saw anyone interesting enough to watch. Apparently they all stay inside on Saturday's because it looked deserted. The point of this is that I discovered a beautiful pathway through the forest behind my school that I am going to hike one day after school; maybe this week!

The kimbap class was great! I was in a group with 4 other 6th grade girls. I was in charge of cutting the kimbap rolls. Whenever I cut one wrong, or if it fell apart, one of the girls would pick up the crumbled kimbap, put it right in front of my mouth and say "eat." Koreans love to feed each other... It's the funniest thing! Anyhow, our group won for the BEST TASTING KIMBAP and BEST PRESENTATION. It was Korea's own version of the iron chef contest! Anyhow, we all celebrated with the news of our victory with high 5's and cups of cider!

After class, Kevin and Jinho scooted over to my school to pick me up to go to the beach where we basked in the sun, dipped in the cool and jellyfish-filled ocean water, built a sand castle, watched it crumble, talked about politics and drove the scooter on the boardwalk! Oh, maybe I should clarify - I DROVE the scooter on the boardwalk. Yep, Kev gave me a lesson and I didn't even crash! It was hit and miss there at the beginning, but I think I've got it now.

After the beach we rode the scooter to a huge bookstore about 15 minutes across town to try to find new books to indulge in on the beaches of Thailand in August. I picked out "Honeymoon with my Brother" which I had a hard time saving for the trip. I'm already on chapter 4.
