Today I tasted freedom for the first time in almost four months. I jumped on the mule and just drove. I finally went out of the city and saw some of the countryside which makes up most of Korea. Here are some of the sights I saw.
As I was driving into the mountains I came to a dead end at this Buddhist Temple. The countryside seems to be filled with them.
The artwork always amazes me. It is so sad that they put so much time and effort into something that is so futile.
I have been taking Kuk Sool Won Classes for 1 month now. I have learned 4 of the 6 positions in order to take my white belt test. Hopefully by the end of February I will be ready for my test. Today we visited with another class. Here are a few pictures.
Caleb's Qua Ja Nim- or his instructor
Claudine and I
Joshua was singing and filling in on acoustic guitar.
Jeremiah on keyboard and I can't remember on bass guitar.
Claudine and I after the service. She is from South Africa but came to South Korea by way of New Zealand.
I have been searching for 3 months with Kelly for new running shoes. We have gone to Seoul two times just to look for shoes. Yesterday we finally found them here in downtown Jeonju. This is amazing because Kelly wears a size 11 and it is really true that Asian people have very small feet! Here are her new shoes:

The bike has been affectionately named "the mule" because it has been passed around from foreigner to foreigner. I am approximately the 25th foreign owner. The bike keeps going and doesn't quit! My pastor here actually owned the mule this time last year. He gave it to Dave, the guy I bought it from and Dave sold it to me for the amount of repairs/upkeep over the last year. Below you will see what I mean by mittens. These are placed over the throttle/brake/clutch. once on the bike you just slip your hands into the mittens. It is an amazing invention, your hands stay warm and you can still drive just fine.
I am pretty sure I am not going o call the bike the mule. If you have any suggestions let me know.

Weirder still I just used Skype to dial my cell phone number and it rang again here in South Korea. I am going to call Verizon right now. This is nuts that I can get reception here, I am sure the prices of a phone call are just crazy! Please no one try and call me here. If you are wondering why I even have my cell phone on here, I use it as an alarm clock and I still have all my numbers stored there from everyone I call.
