순대국 Sun-dae-guk

It rained a lot last night and today too. I woke up late and went out to meet my Japanese friend and her Korean husband for lunch. Since I’m moving back to the US in less than a couple months, it might be the last time meeting up with them. I met her at Yonsei University and we became good friends ever since. We got soon-dae-guk, which was good except for the soon-dae itself (which I think is pig’s intestines…). My friend is very very good at speaking Korean and we spent about 80% of the time speaking in Korean about various things. They met when they were both on a working holiday in Australia, and have been together ever since. My friend is very good at English too and her husband can speak it pretty well also. After lunch, we went to Baskin Robbins and ate a lot of ice cream. It was nice seeing them again and we’ll be able to keep up through facebook.

After meeting them, I went off to the church to teach more English. Today there weren’t many people who showed up. Maybe because of the rainy weather? There seems to be less people outside here when it rains a lot. Although with the umbrellas out, it feels much more crowded. Especially at the top of the subway entrances. That seems to be a very popular place for people to stand and block the pathways for everyone else trying to enter or exit while opening or closing their umbrellas. Speaking of blocking paths, I sometimes see people park their motorbikes or cars on the sidewalk right in the main walkway area blocking everyone trying to walk by. To me it gets annoying, but not much I can do about it…

I spent the rest of the day messing around with website stuff and doing some studying.
