A few days catch-up ~ Mom's visit resumes!
We took the top floor of the restaurant and sipped on some red and white wine, amusing ourselves with our cameras and slurping up the delicious meal!
Later, Mom and I took a taxi over to a little town called Padong, where I tutor Windy ~ We ended up waking up the entire household, as it appeared everyone had taken a mid-afternoon nap after their church activities. Wooops! In any event, Mom got to see me tutor Windy for an hour, and we played a few games and had fun in general.
By a hair past 5:30, Mom and I took the bus
to the next town, Jung-dong, and headed over to a beautiful Buddhist temple. I had already visited the place, and new Mom would enjoy seeing the inside decor and learning a little about the Buddhist religion.
Next plan, over to Chilgok to have dinner with my friend Myunghee and her son. Myunghee made a beautiful display of the meal with plenty of side dishes. Was a good time indeed ~ and I think the days' travels wore Mom out. With a little bit of soju and a full meal, Mom was tuckered ~ so we decided to head home and took a taxi back to Seobyundong about 9:30pm.
Monday, on the other hand, was another story! I decided to take Mom to work with me to check out my school, and the kids I teach. I definitely didn't realize it would be a crazy scene, with all the students going wild and seeing a foreign lady with beautiful, long-red hair! As the day wore on, I knew my mother was not jiving the rowdy kids and the noises they were making. When the evening was all said and done, and I knew my mother had a longer day than I had teaching!
Headed home, and boy.. was I tuckered out! I couldn't even think to update, let alone brush my teeth and hit the sack! :)
Check out the next entry for today's happs ~ with mom's experiences watching Mel and I get down and funky at Taekwondo! :)
~ Later, Chels
