Days 8 & 9

by Alexandra Rutkowski

Everyone here carries umbrellas- in the sun and in the rain. Crazy.

Yesterday was our farewell to our students. A few of my students gave me gifts and drawings! I’ve come to love them, and it was hard to say goodbye. But we ended the longest week I could ever remember by going to see the showing of Dark Knight Rises. I don’t need to explain how much I loved it.

When it ended, I got up, jumped up and down, clapped and shouted. Apparently they don’t do that in Korea. It was dead silent. I sat down. It was quite awkward.

We went through our orientation today for the upcoming teaching week at Jeonju University. The teaching begins on Monday!
