Weekend 41 of 52.
Water Heater Repair, Hongdae
When we woke up Saturday morning, we found that our apartment was without power. We promptly ate up the perishables in our fridge (leftover chicken soup and taco meat), then Dan went to Dunkin Donuts to charge his phone and call someone at the school. When he got home, we found the breaker box right in the middle of our kitchen in front of our faces, flipped the switch, and had power again for about ten minutes. So Dan re-called someone from his school, and then his boss came out with an electrician and replaced the fuse. We had power again for about ten minutes. So Dan re-called his boss, who came back later in the evening with a different electrician who discovered that our water heater was overloading the circuit. He fixed the water heater, and all was well, and the day was over. But, it was kind of nice to be stuck inside for a day of lounging around, and now we can take consistently hot showers again.
More Christmas decorations. Cardboard letters wrapped in yarn and twine.
Some Kirigami Christmas trees.
At some point on Saturday, Dan mentioned that it was the kind of day that demanded pizza. So we did that.
We also made some more snowflakes out of old magazines.
Dan got bored after two.
Our current snowflakescape.
On Sunday, we met our friend Shin in Hongdae so we could catch up and eat lunch. We saw that our local Taco Bell is almost ready. This is totally going to change our Friday nights.
Hongdae is decorated with glittery Christmas lights.

After climbing stairs up mountains and up hills, this weekend really was a nice break, lazy as it was.
