The student talent show was Saturday night. Acts ranged from instrumental, vocal, dancing, bands, videos, to comedy acts. The cultural diversity was new for me. We had the traditional Korean music played by a young lady on some flute-like instrument. We had the young K...

So, we decided to make so...

I thought I'd give you a quick tour of the outside of our house here. We are renting the house of the biology teacher's family who is in the States on furlough. We are centrally located, right in the middle of campus. We are a very short walk to the classrooms and chap...
