Life in the ROK

West goes East: The lives and adventures of a Californian couple living in Seoul

Sunday, March 16, 2008

Here's Colleen at 38 5/7 weeks at the Seoul Olympic Park. If anyone doesn't remember, they held the Olympics here in 1988. It was kind of a quinceanera, or a coming out, for South Korea and they are still really proud of it. The Olympics preceded the first democratically elected president in Korea, which is probably something the Chinese Communist Party leaders have remembered more than once. Anyway, there was this big fishhook looking sculpture there, along with super prego Colleen.



The park had a nice little 2.5 km ramble we enjoyed. With the weather warming up, it was 55F!, we loved it. The trees are showing off their buds but you can still see the magpie nests for another month or so. The first time we saw magpies was in Colorado Springs then we moved here. Turns out magpies are the national bird of Korea. We like magpie birds, they are friends for us.

I love that you used the word "ramble". Such a great word.

You look fabulous Colleen!

Ramble ... great is that like lollygaging? Or waddling?

Isn't a magpie a pesty bird? I guess you must have a story about the magpies since Colleen mentioned them to me too.
See you soon!

Oh my gosh Colleen, I am so jealous that you are all baby, just like I pictured you to be pregnant. See I knew you looked great...!~Nikki
