Happy Chuseok. Because the holiday falls on a Thursday this year it’s a five day weekend (it’s a 3 day holiday, the middle being the main day with the days before and after for travel and prep). This year I’m spending it with my Ethiopian man. First stop Haeundae Beach in Busan. Now sitting drinking wine and watching the waves.
And just for fun…
I quite enjoy going bug hunting with my students (first grade) during their lunch time recess. Here are a few of our finds. One of the cicadas that make so much noise here in August:
What Koreans call Chinese Cicadas, though I’m not sure they are actually even related to cicadas. The underwings ante a bright red and their eyes are bright red and they are excellent jumpers and fliers:
Fuzzy. At least that is what it’s name is now.
And then there is Spike. Such a beautiful and perfect little creature.
Went to Cafe Bene to sit for a while with a friend/co-worker while she killed time. Not a bad place but not my favorite. It is a chain coffee shop but doesn’t have all of the coffee choices and they don’t have low fat milk. I do quite like the painted wall at the end, though.
Having a hospital sleepover.
These little dainty little toes are a tad small for shoes, but some day she’ll be sporting all kinds of cute and cool shoes. Yuri Kim was born this morning. Of course Auntie Laura had to go for a visit. .
One of the reasons I moved into this apartment is the balcony with its view. For days like this. Perfect for sitting in my comfy balcony chair sipping a latte and reading the next Game of Thrones book.
Here are the same shoes but without the Angry Birds socks. At the subway station waiting for the train.
