Back from NYC (and California)

I'll post a few pics from Long Beach, San Diego, and Tijuana, Mexico as soon as Rob sends them to me. Unfortunately I didn't have a digital camera for that trip two weekends ago. This past weekend I visited an old buddy from grade school who now lives in New York. It was my first time there (or anywhere on the east coast for that matter), so I was glad to see a little of the city.

Testing out the new photography skills have a long way to go

I took a small plane from Springfield to St. Louis

I guess John Lennon used to hang out here

Going to California

to visit my buddy Rob in L.A., the guy behind these sites, if you're into guitar and rock & roll:

Join up on MuSATO and help save guitar tablature!

Probably driving to Vegas, too...Any Koreans in the area who want to hang out, especially bookies, feel free to contact me. I'll head back to Springfield on Monday.

Looking for a full-time teaching job in Seoul

I may go the route of flying back to Korea and calling on schools, since I feel like a sucker going through a recruiter. But thought I'd throw this up here just to follow all avenues and leads...

If you're reading this and happen to know of any exceptional teaching opportunites opening around September 1st, please let me know: riceteacher at gmail dot com

Maybe something similar to what this guy found after one year's experience. I'm grateful for any tips or resources that are out there!

Buddha's Birthday Celebration in Insadong

A few months back. We couldn't figure out what the girl in the second pic was doing to warrant such a crowd.

No Love

If you look at the side bar you'll notice the ClustrMap. I haven't gotten any hits from Russia, South America, or Antarctica, so if you know anyone in those places, kindly direct them to my blog.

지금 Chicago에서

Met my family at O'Hare last night. I was a frickin' zombie after 20+ hours in planes and airports, but it feels damn good to be back! American Airlines, never again. Not only did they charge for alcohol, let's just say the hiring practices of Asian airline companies are much...better.


It's great when women do it, but...
