A glimpse of summer

So now that my Vietnam pictures are finished and posted I thought it would be nice to carry on with the rest of my summer. I seem to be a lot behind on my updates so I have decided to highlight some of the things I enjoyed in August and September. So in no particular order here they are:

A hike through the mountains with a friend on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Then Indian food for dinner ;)


Heading to a 1 year old birthday celebration:


Meeting up with Sung Hyun's family for dinner and then watching his niece eat spicy chicken feet in the bar:


Taking a long bus ride home but enjoying the English television available on Sung Hyun's handphone:


Celebrating my friends birthday in her friends massive apartment while eating a lot of delicious barbecued food:


Going to Yongsan military base and eating so much Taco Bell that it hurt to walk. Then being able to buy Western toothpaste:


Reading a book from start to finish in one day and eating mini pancakes for breakfast:


Cruising around Seoul, just because we can, with my handsome lover:


A day in the sun at Yeoido pool with a little volleyball and 'let's check out hot guys grease themselves up with oil':

(had to throw Sung Hyun in there for good measure)

Getting introduced to a cool little restaurant tucked away in the back streets of Hongdae for a night of good convo and food:


Then going back the next week because it was that good:


Getting dressed up and going shopping for something *special*:


Chowing down on Indian, opening presents then eating my homemade Western style cake for my birthday..........yum yum:


Going for Koreanized Japanese food while overlooking a busy street:


Drinking beer on a rainy day at a restaurant 5 minutes from my house:

And those are the days of my summer. Very enjoyable!!!! How was yours?

Hey Jennifer,
Didn't realize it was your birthday... happy belated birthday girl!!! Who gave you that smokin' dude in the teanie-weenie pants for your birthday?! Dang!!! Hehehe.
I don't care what ANYONE says about Korean men, props to them for the confidence to wear such clothes, or lack there of it, and dang...if you have a body like that, why not show it off. By the way, Sung Hyun is a hottie too! Good job... hehehe

My name is Roger Wellor and I’m doing a study of the successes and failures of Korean International Tourism Marketing (I found your blog on the Korean blogs list). I have a brief survey online that I invite you to take. It is designed to be answered by Korean/US bloggers and to give a slight outline of how these cross-cultural thinkers evaluate Korea’s International Marketing.

Sorry to do this in comments, but I didn’t see an email link.

Your email will not be used for anything other than this survey (in fact it is not a required field in the survey) and if you have any questions, I can be contacted here at rwellor@spunangel.com.

Here is the link:


thank you,
