When you are new to a country everything is magical and the place has no faults. I'm almost certainly in that phase right now.
There are some foods I have tried that thoughts, "Well right now I love it, but I can imagine really hating it in six months." You know how when you wake up in the morning your breath has that nasty funky smell? Well, because of the different diet my morning breath has a new and different funky smell. I wake out of a dead sleep at 4 in the morning because I can't bear the smell anymore! How gross yet funny.
So far I haven't been to a single Korean families home. At the moment we are in quarantine because of the swine flu epidemic. Not that we have swine flu, but that as foreigners we could be carriers of swine flu ... I guess. They don't want us around the children or the elderly. It doesn't make much sense to us because we are around the pastor and the other teachers and then they are around the children and the elderly.
Yesterday Leta, Molly, and I went for a very long walk in the afternoon. We walked up and down a mountain and to the lake on the other side. Then we took the bus back into town. We bought pizza at a really cool pizza place. I got spare-rib pizza, Leta got Cheese, and Molly got sweet potato pizza. We ordered steak and onion, cheese, and chicken respectively. It was a good day.
Well, I'm on my way to dawn prayer now. Love, Michael.
