A few weekends ago, the rest of us went to Upo Wetlands about 15 minutes from Changnyeong. It was a gorgeous day, perfect for exploring the area. We got there and it was one of the most adorable places.
After a long morning hike, a 3 hour flight delay and a Pizza Hut and Bintang feast in the airport (the most basic, most common beer in Indonesia), we made it to our next destination - Lombok*! In the morning, we had breakfast, played some cards, and had hired a driver to take us beach hopping for the day!
Our long summer vacation started with Luke and I arriving in Hong Kong. We couldn’t check in right away so we went and explored the area nearby. We saw a neat rooftop garden, The Garden of Stars, which honored Hong Kong celebrities with quite a few statues and greenery. It was a great place to see the ocean, the city buildings and the streets all at once.
Japan happened in the blink of an eye. Although we had done so much, I felt like we didn't do anything since I didn't have time to process any of it.
Last Friday was Selestia's birthday, but it was a fun day for all of us. Liam and some of the other teachers used the Duty Free Shop (aka market simulation room) in the school to create a "photo room" to surprise her.
We have hit monsoon season! So naturally, the group decided to spend a night on Bijindo Island a few weekends ago. Beach camping!
We've continued playing a LOT of four square. Usually before our Friday evening dinners. And a few weeks ago, Liam even made the King's hat out of balloons.
