Well, I am living abroad...yet again. After Singapore, Spain, Turkey, Korea the Netherlands (and returning to Spain for a Masters) I've unpacked my backpack a little closer to home in Mexico. I live in Culiacan where I am trying my hand at teaching English to University and high school students. Below you'll find random updates as I go to festivals, explore my city or just feel like sharing a random story.

Vacation Thus far


Friday I went out with a bunch of my fellow teachers in my province...lots of fun, went out a little late..too late probably....oh well

Saturday basically went straight from the...library (this is my new code word for bar) to a bus to Chuncheon a town north of Seoul and...east...in Ganwando...ANYWAYS headed up there for a friends going away birthday party. Involving, an island, sausages, dodgeball, capture the flag, soccer, this game you play like volley ball..but with your feet annnnd...ultimate frisbee. Went to a library called Sheriff's later that night, and ultimately ended up Norebanin' it (ban means room, nore singing, so its Kareoke), grabbed brekkie annnd I was on another bus

Sunday Picked up my stuff from my place got on another bus to Mokpo (5 hours south) slept most of the bus. Walked around Mokpo, saw and AWESOME sculpture park hiked up the mountain a little, went to a jim-jil ban (again ban meaning room, jim jil meaning steam...so like a sauna) showered, chilled in the hot tubs, and then took a sleeping mat to a corner and conked out!

Monday Woke up and caught a bus to the ferry, took my five hour ferry, arrived in JEJU!!! Met up with Min and walked around seeing the beautiful island: valleys, beaches, waterfalls, etc. Went to dinner with new friend Zach had eel. Sooo fresh it was still moving, literally. They cut it up and its still moving and they put it on the grill...yummmy. Off to a library and then home for the night.

Tuesday Met up with Maxie (we met rafting a while back) and hiked up a Mountain with her BEAUTIFUL, got a ride home and now just writing this to keep you updated...hope all is well :-)

I like that you keep busy! I hope that you are taking pictures of all these "beautiful" sights. Or have you lost your camera? Went out with the "girls." New old restuarant in old La Mesa. Very nice. Drank way too much at the "library." Reina says that she likes to read your BLOG during her breaks @ work and just drift off to wherever you are. Patricia was very interested in your future Spain walk.
