I've been in Korea for about 3 or so weeks now. I figured creating a blog would be helpful in keeping everyone in "the know" of what Joshua and I have been doing since some of y'all dont have facebook,etc..
Last weekend,Katie and Thomas (the people im staying with),Josh and Me,and another couple went and saw New Moon on the IMAX in the neighboring city of Daegu. It was fun. Instead of the theater being cold,it was hot.hot enough for me to take off my jacket and scarf and eventually I just quit holding Josh's hands because our hands got so sweaty!it was ridiculous.and it was insanely loud. The building that held the IMAX was huge.probably atleast 10 stories and the IMAX was just two floors. Everything is really compact here because they dont have a lot of land. In the first 3 floors or so or the building is a department store. It looks like a Nordstroms or something. I hav eno clue what was in the rest of the building. They have an underground parking garage for the cars that are going to the IMAX,shopping,etc. It was so expensive though! We were there for about 5 hours and it cost us 16000 won. Which is more or less $14.50.
In Daegu, they have malls underneath their streets.There are entrances on the sidewalks near intersectioins of roads.The entrance looks just like the entrance to a subway in New York.you walk underneath the street and when you get down the stairs its a long mall. I'm glad they thought of that kind of idea. Since Koreans drive INSANELY,people can cross the street by going underneath the road into the Mall. We found an Olive Garden, a Bennigans, and a KFC while we were running around in Daegu-it was lovely. (and Sarah,they have a Taco Bell over here on one of the bases!yay!!) We even found a bar that was run by an American!It was so nice to be able to speak English without trying to use sign language haha

^^ Both of those are from walking around downtown.in the bottom picture to the right you can see one of their dunkin' donuts.these people inhale donuts and coffee!!

^this is the bar we found.thats Katie and Thomas on the left.Josh in the middle in the grey shirt and the other couple we went with,The Martino's.

Joshua also re-enlisted while I was over here about a week ago. I was the only civillian in the room,therefore I was the only one in open toe shoes. They all asked me if my feet were cold,but lets be serious-I can wear flip flops in just about every type of weather! ;) It was really fun watching how all that swearing in and stuff was done and getting to meet some of his "big-wigs". They were all really nice and had good advice about Korea because most of them had been before.

Well i dont have too much else to write currently. Im about to go email all of you with this URL so I shall chat later,aligators!!
