Dinner at the Kims

When we first arrived in Korea we sent out around 60 flyers advertising our English class in our apartment. Ryan Kim was the only one to respond. They were looking not just for English but also to get to know their neighbors. He said we are still the only neighbors he knows! What a wonderful family. His wife was very stressed and cooked the chicken stew for the first time just for us. We love them. But their daughter cries every time she sees us--scary Americans!

Street Smarts

What is this man talking about? He shows up every once in awhile by our subway and gathers quite a crowd.

Feeling Better in Korea

My first time to a Korean Hospital, Samsung Medical Center. I think these people are waiting to pay their bills? Maybe, I am not sure. Anyone know? Such a beautiful building. PS We were visiting a missionary.

Give The Heart

Everyone needs to find someone that will give them the heart of the watermelon. I did.

The Happiest Man in Korea

Sometimes we walk past him four or six times a day. (Always an even number) He is ALWAYS smiling so we call him the happiest man. He sells clothes on the street--everyday he puts them up and everyday he takes them down. He is a wonder. Elder K gave him a Book of Mormon, I gave him a fan. We hope he is using both!

And this, my friends, is Puff Daddy. I have worked for 10 months to get him to smile at me, or even look at me for that matter. He also sells on the street all things that are puffed. (Think puffed wheat, giant versions of Trix, Kix, Captain Crunch.) So far, no smile.
