What a weird weekend. We are now in the fourth, no actually sixth week of the weekend class. Wow time flies! Yogita and I have decided make more concrete plans for family outings. In the past we would just impulsively travel, when we had time. Now with gasoline companies milking consumers and blaming high prices on a country that supplies only 2% of the worlds oil. We can not afford to go running off whenever we so please. Or rather we could, but it would damage our budget. Yogita and I have made tentative plans to get a better car, but we will have to see if it is in our best interests.
Korea like I have written before is a really weird place in that people don't really seem worried about events around them. Rather they just sort of shrug their shoulders. I wonder how Japan's disaster will change people's mood. So far, we talk about it, donate money via cell phones, and kids can be seen wearing masks. (I do not want to get into a long rant on those masks!) All in all that is all I have seen.
Although one student told me about a foreign professor who was wearing a gas mask in Jeon-ju. LOL
What about your skin buddy! Sure your lungs are ok, but Radiation can and is absorbed right through the skin. I mean...x-rays anyone. Basically I am saying lets be aware, and not treat this disaster like it is nothing, but lets not over do it.
Oh and so far I have heard that 2 ESL teachers died in Japan.
