The stay at Suanbo dragged into another week of mind-numbing busy work. We passed the days typing away lesson plans and the evenings were spent drinking and playing games. There was nothing else to do and nowhere we could go. Once in a while that’s fine but day after day it starts to get old real quick. I was looking forward to the weekend and to checking out a few more of the landmarks around Chungju that we had missed the week before. Friday came and brought along with it a gloomy friend. Hello, rain. It kept pouring all day and it looked like it would continue through the weekend, dampening my spirits of freedom and adventure.
