First day on vacation we walked around the lake, and here is my impersionation of the sokcho dude!

we then visited a traditional village


we then when to sokcho beach:


we then hiked all the way up to a cave on the side of a mountain. CRAZY!

more views of seoraksan:
probably the coolest picture i've taken. (this was a sign for a coffee shop though :-p)

we then went to seoul, and the DMZ. here is a picture of me IN North Korea standing next to a south korean military officer. dude was INTENSE!

i found it a little unnerving that right when i went to take a picture of the north korean military officer he immediatley picked up his binoculars and looked RIGHT AT ME! YIKES!

We then visited a beautiful palace in seoul:


random bush animal :-p

final view of seoul:

From vacation...

Yes, I'm still stuck on vacation. It was fun! I just got pictures from my fabulous coteacher from August 2nd - the day we went all around to a million different places. I saw a theme in her pictures - I'm making a goofy face in every single one!! Mind you, it was NOT intentional. I guess I should stop making these faces. It seems to be true - my face HAS gotten stuck like that!!!!!!

Dale's Visit

We've had fun with Dale here.

The best was going to Seoraksan on August 5th. It was a blast.

The best part was climbing up to the HUGE high places.


(You can see me and Daniel on the rock!)



The scariest part was rappelling down.

(Look closely - we're there!)


But luckily we had Sherpa Dale to help us.

There will be tons of pics on Picasa as soon as we can get them all captioned.
