slightly upsetting pictures from camp

Jason would like this camp (he terrorized a camp, right? Micheal Vorhees was the Hallowe'en guy, wasn't he? Did Jason have a last name?) One evening, I was called up to the main dorm for students and a student jumped out a window to tell us his problem. He had to jump because all the doors were closed and locked.

I am told my university's dorms are also locked up like this at night. Note to self: If my child goes to a Korean university, get a room on the first floor with a window and a saw to cut the bars or give a long rope as a gift.

Don't even get me started on the fire escapes from upper floor. Actually, they look like a lot of fun. Basically, you rappel down the side of the building: the fire escape is a rope.

Back in Korea

I returned to Korea about 5 days ago. Three days ago, I came to Minjok Sagwan to do work at a camp. I am now teaching middle school students for a month.

I am not sure why I am back to this camp. I have some mixed feelings about how this camp runs. I was tempted to discuss them here after the summer camp (This is the third camp I have worked at for Minjok) but was nervous about burning my bridges here. We'll see what happens after this camp.

The post below this, or at the end of Dec, features me playing Auld Lang Syne on the danso. I hadn't realized how terrible it was until I got to Korea and could listen to it. I blame trying to balance the phone on my lap to record the music.
