Listen Quickly

We run into this man now and then. He holds up a sign that tells you what train is arriving. He always gives us candy and smiles. We can't figure him out other than he is with some church, maybe. My battery died right when I was filming him playing Amazing Grace. Sorry.

One Handsome Guy!

Totem Poles in Korea












I got lost on the 360 acre Olympic Park. Lucky me! So I got to wander and see this fantastic display of public art, one of which were these totem poles leading up to the World Peace Gate entrance.

Little Beauties




The fruit lady sees me holding these little beauties and watches me jabbering to Elder K in English while I am wondering what in the world is in my hand. W3,000. Is it worth it? I don't know. But we are buying a watermelon because those are just scrumptious. She then grabs a basket full and puts it in the sack, all the while going on and on in Korean. Since most of you probably don't understand Korean, I will translate for you: Here, I can tell you really want these but you don't know what they are. Since you are buying a watermelon and you walk past here EVERYDAY, I will give you these little beauties for free! And maybe you will come back and buy some more fruit from me.
(See, my Korean really has improved. And, I still don't know what they are but I couldn't wait for them to get soft so I cut one open. It tastes like a nectarine. Well, a really hard nectarine.)

This beauty of a brush is made from horse hair. I fell in love until I saw it cost $400.

We caused quite a stir on the subway today as a group of Korean kids practiced their English on us. Elder Knudsen handed out Article of Faith cards.
