13) Horseback riding 2.0 & other adventures

Three weeks ago I went horseback riding with co-workers and to church with a student and his family. This weekend was exactly the same.

Friday: Relaxed.
Saturday: Went horseback riding and to lunch. We went to a beef soup restaurant where they slaughter the cows in a building behind the restaurant. I made plans to swim laps at the stadium pool with a co-worker next weekend.
Sunday: I went to church from 11-3 with the student and his family; we had lunch and dessert in the middle. Since I don’t feel a connection to the religion I told the student I would not be back in November but maybe some time in December. As I was saying good bye, the family brought me to a nearby hotel to buy me cake. I asked for a slice of red velvet and the dad said no. He then purchased me an entire jelly roll cake instead. The politeness in Korea continues to surprise me.

Later that night, I went to a bar for Mexican food but it was way too hectic. It happens again next month so hopefully I’ll get a burrito then.

Jeju is famous for their tangerines. I call them clementines.

The student gave me snacks for church; sausage and a chocolate/marshmallow bar.

We went out for dessert before the next session of church. Honey bread is really popular in Korea, he chose one with chocolate on top.
