After the dance fest we had a snack time where everyone enjoyed spicy kimbob and salad sandwiches. As I watched others eat their strange things called food I was told that we were going to have a meeting for the singles of the ward as soon as this activity was over. This meant another meeting where I was told that I needed to date more and get married so that I can have children. Apparently, all I am good for is having babies(According to all the leaders in this ward). This little meeting I opted out of a translator in the hope that I could skip that part of the subject. They did write DATING in big letters on the board in english so I got the point. I also was the only girl in that little reunion so naturally awkwardness followed. But we all decided to be nice to the leader and went all four of us on a 'date' afterwards. I with three guys went bowling, only one understood english.
But I schooled them in Bowling though! We played three games and I won two of the matches. The one match I did lose meant I had to buy dinner for one of the guys. So we went to McDonalds, real classy I know. And I am not a cheapskate, they asked for it. We spent the next hour talking, kinda. Well me acting out half the things I said and then I would sit and stare at the wall as they went on in Korean.
That was fun and I really did enjoy hanging out with people that had my same standards. Relaxing in its own way and the fact that none of them were drinking was a great plus. It was great.
The real fun happened this last Wednesday though. We had that day off because it was Korea's Memorial day and I was invited by my friend to go to Namhae Beach. We visited an abandoned high school, behind the school was a bunch of rice fields! Then we walked around in some tide pool areas and then we got to the beach where I could swim and just have fun. I took a ton of pictures which I will put a few here but the rest I will post on facebook, it is just easier to upload more than one pictures.
That was the abandoned Highschool, really cool!
