Day 144: The last two weeks have been great. Last weekend we went into Seoul with some friends to look for Halloween stuff - Brandon's going to me a cowboy and I'm going to be an Indian. Since Koreans do not really celebrate the holiday, we didn't have much luck, so it looks like we'll be getting creative with the art supplies at school :) We also went to Yongsan with our friend Jenny to do some shopping. Brandon bought a video game called Uncharted 2 and I got a pair of fall/winter boots. We ended our day of shopping with a lunch at a trendy restaurant that overlooked Seoul.
This weekend we had beautiful weather, so we took Jenny to the zoo, since she hasn't been there yet. Plus I love any excuse to go to the zoo...Anyways, we couldn't of asked for nicer weather and the leaves were all such beautiful Fall colors as you can see...
And of course, the animals were beautiful and fun to watch as always. Since we have been to the zoo a few times already, I took Jenny around to the animals while Brandon took a hike through the mountains that surround the zoo. Here are a few of the photos I snapped as we walked around....

We met back up with Brandon just in time to go watch the lion feedings. They have about 9 lions and they are so awesome to watch, especially when they are being fed. We showed up a little early and got to see the four big males all cuddling and relaxing together which was pretty amazing. We watched them jump and fight over raw chickens that were being thrown to them by their trainer. At the end of the feeding, there is one "extra" chicken that gets thrown and they have to fight for it and there was a chase scene which was pretty epic.

Then on Sunday, we got together with our friend Dennis and his new baby girl Iris. He had asked me to take some photos of the baby for him, which I gladly agreed to do. She is so adorable and has the most stunning dark green eyes! I'm still working on the shots, but I'll share them as soon as they are ready. That's all for now, we'll update you again shortly.

With love from South Korea,
Shayna & Brandon xo
