I'm back in Seoul after a couple days of craziness at a camp site in Gyeonggi Province. I was working as a youth camp staff member because the program was an initiative of the NGO I'm interning for this month. While there, I was reminded that 1) sleep is for the weak, 2) I truly despise mosquitoes and 3) Koreans like to incorporate physical pain in their "games".

Last night, I met some relatives for an amazing dinner at the Shilla, where I was reminded that 1) the Korean economy is doing very well and 2) 피가 물보다 진하다.

In a few hours, I'll be leaving for a temple-stay at Golgulsa (골굴사), where I hope to learn a few more things.
