It's thursday, August 4th and jamie and I have been in Seoul for a week already. We are teaching at Herald language Institute, a Hagwon school. We will later be joined by our good friends, Lydia and Nathan at the end of this month.

Here are a few pictures of our Vista run to Osaka, Japan. Yesterday we went to Japan for one day: the famed
> one day Osaka Visa run. It
> was such an interesting day that I'm going to write
> a piece of creative non
> fiction about it. Regardless to say, we flew out of
> Seoul at 10 am and flew
> out of Osaka at 7 pm, and in between those hours had
> to find our way to
> downtown Osaka and apply for a Visa at the Korean
> consulate. The whole deal
> was a lot more interesting because we ran into about
> 10 other English
> teachers doing the same thing. Ever see the reality
> TV show "the amazing
> race"? Now I know how it feels.

This is a traditional tea house in the Anguk district. Jamie and I went here for tea after church last Sunday. Anguk is kind of an artistic, cultural and historical place in Seoul.
