The Skulls -the most feared English Teaching duo in Nowon-gu - are taking off on Sunday. Not so cool. They have been here for one year and have taught diligently for 11 months and 17 days. We've loved getting to know them, hang out with them, noraybong with them (no two have ever sung 'Hero' so true to its intended glory) , jimjilbong with them (no pictures here cuz that would just be wrong), talk with them and get to go to Dokejokedo with them too! They have been wonderful friends whom we cherish and will miss dearly. But, we take comfort in the fact that they will soon be able to buy yogurt in larger-than-1-tbsp sizes, 4L LOWFAT milk, and breathe real clean(er) Canadian air. So at least they're not going to something worse.
It's been great with the Skulls! With their departure, the Gang o' 6 is suddenly reduced to 2, but here are some pics to remind us of some highlights together:
Lydia and Nathan on their hogs. Not many couples can pull off biking with so much 'tude, but these two do it effortlessly.
Weird faces at restaurants and hofs. Pretty much anywhere we went these guys were always making interesting pictures and sights for the other patrons.
Sharing the tuna and rameon!!! Soooooooo good.....
Quite possibly the first clear day in Korea we ever experienced (back in May) -on our way home from the Doke. That whole weekend was such a wonderful time with the Skulls -we were so glad to have gone together.
So yes, we must now say goodbye as they are about to take off on Sunday and head back to Canada and various travel adventures! We hope you guys have a great trip back and a wonderful autumney autumn (yes, that's an adjective now). You will be missed guys!
