I have finally returned home from a 2 1/2 week trip to Seoul with Brittany Primavera. The first week in Seoul, we taught a week long camp with our friend Jinhee Yeo, which I wrote about here. As I am still jet lagged and awake in the middle of the night, I thought I would take this time to post a few pictures from the second half of our trip!
