A Million Roman Candles

Monday, 1 Jan 2007 | Views [1594] | Video

A party's not a party unless it threatens your life... Huddled together, a million people and I clutched roman candles and danced as we waited for the moment we had all come for. We counted down to midnight, and everyone lit their fireworks. The light ... Read more >

What is going on?

Wednesday, 29 Nov 2006 | Views [1411]

The ultimate mystery of the universe? Time. I'm fascinated. How come the older I get, the faster the speed of time seems to be? My last entry was at the beginning of September and all of the sudden it's December. I have no idea how that happened. I'm ... Read more >

Muddy Blues

Friday, 21 Jul 2006 | Views [867]

I've been a little blue lately, but... nothing cures the blues like painting yourself in mud, running full speed into the ocean to wash it off, re-applying the mud, diving into the ocean once again, and continuing the cycle until the weekend is ... Read more >

There are two bus-loads of people with me on the (American army) USO's tour of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). When we get to the first check point, we are shuffled off the bus and herded like cattle into two single-file lines. Our passports are checked ... Read more >

I'm in Daechuri, a small rice farming village outside of Seoul. It's early morning and I'm walking through the streets with a couple of friends. We had come the evening before to join the candlelight vigil that had illuminated the village every night ... Read more >

Life in Seoul

Thursday, 9 Mar 2006 | Views [1230]

It's hard to believe I've been here for two months already. With the exception of the first half of February, when I was struck with a brutal bout of the flu, I've been so busy- either working at the school or having a good time in Korea. I've managed ... Read more >

The Two Koreas

Sunday, 26 Feb 2006 | Views [789]

I'm teaching English. I'm modelling an assignment on the board in which the students must research and present on a foreign country of their choice. I'm using Korea as an example and as I begin to write "The population of Korea is...", I'm ... Read more >
