The real October 23rd

So here we go. Today as you may have noticed did all of my blogging. I am glad that I got it all caught up. After I finished I went to work, did the whole bus trip by myself. I was proud that I figured out how to do it. Well I might have missed it on the way there, but thankfully someone knew what bus I meant to catch and started motioning, and yelling at me to run to the next corner and catch it. It was funny. I know I looked dumb. I met Hee-Jung and we did a lesson, and then went to the Market so that I could get hangers. The market that we went to was so cool. I loved it. I noticed that it smelled like fish though and then we came up to a massive fish stand. Kinda gross but it solved the smell issue. The market was fun, and Hee-Jung told me that it was a street market. There was stands with all different types of things from clothes-food-make up-purses. I am pretty sure that I am going to have to go there again. After that we went back to the office and did another lesson. When I got off of work I went back to what I thought was a scarf & hat shop. Well it wasn't it was kinda but they just display them. I walked in and there was all of these ladies sitting there staring at me. They were taking a knitting class, and I think I interrupted..yes yes I did. Then they motioned for me to sit and join them I think but I just laughed and said "no just looking", and then walked out shortly there after. It was pretty good. So for dinner I got chicken but it was way spicy and I had a problem eating it because my nose started to run, and my eyes started to water because it was so hot. Oh well at least I have food for tomorrow. I also did my dishes tonight. It was the first time that I used them and after I cleaned them right away, and my apartment is still clean. My parents would be proud!

I'm so proud of you! Sounds like you are adapting pretty well. I think you are on the right track with making a complaint to HLS regarding the removal of shoes in the airport...bad deal!!!
