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.

What time is it?

Sue Sunday

So I had a day trip to this small city(well more like a suburb of the city Geochang) called Sue Sunday. That is sooo not the correct romanization, but at least this way you guys will understand how to spell it. It was a REALLY pretty place so here are some random photos from it:

The Geochang crew trying to figure out what busses to take to get there:

A really cool door to one of the houses
A puppy that ran right up to me and was sooo cute I wanted to put him in my purse but I resisted!

The river,lots more where this came from!

The fruit/nut thing that come fromthe HUGE tree

Pretty sky, pretty treeI reeallly liked this bench
Look MV colors!!!

Reminds me of Mexico a liitle, they dry the peppers out this way

River and bridge
Built in 1542 ShinGwon (a Confucioan scholar) taught his pupils and lectured here. This pavilion (called Tosujeong Pavillion) was destroyed during the Japanese invasion of Korea (like so many other things).It is considered one of themost important archiectual designs of Geochang because it is designed to withstand cold mountain life.

River and bridge from a distance

One of the paths
Random statues
You make a wish and put the rock on the rock piles. That way your wish is closer to coming true.

Big rock with Chinese and Korean symbols on it (easier to see if you click on it and make the picture bigger)

Me and Jorge in front of the big rock

The sky getting darker on the way home
