Better Late Than Never...

Hey everybody, sorry it's been so long since my last post. I'm back in Korea and things are going great. This week we had the Secondary Retreat, where we hauled the kids up into the mountains and had a 3-day getaway and time to focus on spiritual things and to get to know one another. The pics below are when we did the zipline (kinda anticlimactic but still fun). The coolest thing was paintball (I shot at least 2 people!) but I don't have any pics of that. The other pics are from the road trip there and back. This sign is in Chinese and Korean and the last part says "ramyen" or ramen, like for Ramen Noodles, get it?

Pretty colors :) 

 Hey! It's an outdoor pool in Korea! Very rare and seldom used. 

Me and the girls beside me (and a coworker in the back) - see how they use their peace signs differently?

 I think this is the Han River but I'm not certain.

These are pretty much the only trucks I see in Korea. If you can't tell they're pretty small.

 Just an example of more Korean characters for those that are curious.

 I'll always be grateful to 7Eleven for providing me my first meal in Korea last year when I arrived.

 That's my bank on the right - Nonghyup. It's the closest bank to the school so I can run down there (literally) during the day if I need to.

An example of what the buildings in Korea look like. It's no longer a big blur to me. 

Getting ready for ziplining (2 of my coworkers in the background).
