A Passover Weekend.

We recently joined a small house church who we meet with every Saturday afternoon, mostly Koreans, three Americans, but the conversations happen in English. We decided to observe a Seder service with our church as part of our Passover/Easter celebrations. Rachel brought us all Korean style baked eggs (baked in the shell on a hot stone). Jini brought some oranges. Dan led the service, and we all got sugar high on grape juice. I think my blood sugar has just now returned to normal.

Orchestrating Our Own Cherry Blossom Festival

Last year, we went to Yeouido's Cherry Blossom Festival. In fact, we went twice because nothing much had bloomed during our first attempt. This year, we just walked a couple blocks of our neighborhood for an easier, arguably prettier festival of our own. And then we walked to Taco Bell. Yeouido ain't got no Taco Bell.

See who has awakened from her month long slumber and finally remembered to take her camera out into the Eastern world. It's me! For weeks I have burdened Dan to remind me to bring my camera when we go places-- for weeks to no avail. But we went down to Itaewon for some half priced Tuesday fish and chips with Korrine, and there I was with my camera triumphantly strapped across my person.

Another hindrance to regular blogging is that our life here has just become our life. We have normal weekend activities that take up the whole of each Saturday. We eat at home on weekdays. Dan has regular language and friend appointments two nights of the week, during which I watch Britain's Next Top Model and knit baby clothes. Lovely things all, but not terribly exciting.

2 for 1 fish and chips, though. That is exciting.
