Day 165: Hisayo! Well we've had another awesome few weeks here in Korea. Our schedules have been a little nuts lately due to the swine flu. Our school had to shut down for a week about two weeks ago, and so we had a nice welcomed break. Although, now we are working Saturdays to make up the days we lost and it's pretty tiring! Brandon brought his guitar in last Saturday to play for the kids. We've been teaching them fun songs like Twist and Shout and In the Jungle, and hearing them sing with their little Korean accents is hysterical! We play them the Ferris Bueller video for twist and shout and they dance around the room, it's too cute! We are also teaching them Christmas songs- my pre kinders have mastered Walking in a Winter Wonderland. I taught them the Jason Mraz version and they scat and everything, it's amazing how quickly they've caught on to it.
So since we haven't had much free time since our week off, I thought I'd share some photos I took of my friend Jenny. We went to this place we found called Fantastic studios, where they have recreated old Korean movie sets. It only cost $3 to get in and it looks like an old deserted run down town filled with old bars and movie theatres, but it was actually only built in 2008.
We were the only ones there for most of the day and we had so much fun just running around and shooting away...She made my job easy, she's gorgeous!
We had such a good time, and we kept each other laughing all day long! I love her!
As always, we love and miss you all! Oh and we booked our trip to Phuket, Thailand for our winter vacation, which we are super excited about! We have a great hotel and we are planning all sorts of fun excursions :) We can't wait to get to the beach since we are supposed to have our first snow tomorrow! Hugs and Kisses xo
With love from South Korea,
Shayna & Brandon
