Photo A Day: March 22-31

Mar 22 - Yum coffee! 
Mar 23 - Went to the store today. I was tempted to purchase one of these beautiful creatures but decided not to. Maybe next time. 
Mar 24 - I was wandering through Sanbon today and decided to stop at Dong Bang. You may think, "what is Dong Bang?" Well if you look at the picture, it is exactly what it looks like...poop. It is basically poop shaped bread, with some sort of filling. I got the chocolate filling for my poop bread. 
Mar 25 - Got some bangers & mash at The Wolfhound (an Irish pub in Itaewon) today. It was delicious!
Mae 26 - I have a new project I am working on at school. I am making all the days and months to display on the whiteboard in my classroom. It takes a long time to cut out all those letters. 
Mar 27 - Eating my usual from a Korean restaurant near the school. 
Mar 28 - Got some ddeokbokki on my way one from work today. YUM! 
Mar 29 - Went to see a movie before work for  ₩5,000 which is about $4.50. 
Mar 30 - Skyped with my best friend this morning. It has been too long! 
Mar 31 - Went to the DMZ in Cherwon where the 2nd Tunnel is. The DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) is 4 km wide, with 2km on the north and 2km on the south, that runs across the Korean Peninsula. Nobody is allowed within the DMZ. The mountains in these pictures are part of North Korea and on the top of the far left one there is a North Korean watch tower.

Mar 18 - Met some new friends over drinks last night. This was taken at about 2 am so it is considered to be a photo from the 18th.

Photo A Day: March 1-7

Mar 1 - Today is the Korean Independence Day! Which also meant I didn't have to work either. 
Mar 2 - For lunch, we had time to go to our favorite Indian restaurant in town. I got myself some chicken marsala on rice with a side of nan. 
Mar 3 - Watch all three extended versions of Lord of the Rings today! 
Mar 4 - I have been in Korea for almost 7 months now. I have been feeling a bit homesick. I am glad that I have pictures of my family and friends to help me. 
Mar 5 - Got paid today and wanted to show how colorful Korean money is. 
Mar 6 - I am getting re-addicted to a game that was first introduced to me 2 years ago. I remember me and my friend David would always compete with each other to get the highest score. The game is now available on iPods, so I have easy access to play it when ever. This picture I took of the iPod screen when I am about to play it.
Mar 7 - One of my kids gave me a drawing today. It is of her and me. It made me happy especially because it came with chocolate.
