Tuttle Update

1) I finished Week 2 of camp yesterday thus completing my obligations to my employer until August 28. In Week 2 of the Schoolhouse Rock camp, we covered The Beatles, Reggae, Rap and the musical Frozen. We also covered adverbs, prepositions, interjections and the predicate. Around the World campers learned about staying in a hotel, with Mr Bean's stay in one providing an example of what not to do, amusement parks, and how to boost Korean tourism. Students created their own tourism posters:

2) I will be in Nepal from the 11th to the 25th, so look forward to a travelogue upon my return.

3) I went searching for some Nepali Rupees to take with me yesterday afternoon, visiting all the "exchange" banks in the area, even venturing as far as Gimpo Airport. Some of them never even heard of Nepal--Indo? Indonesia? China? So I came away without rupees of any sort. I don't like changing money in the destination airport because I'm never sure I can trust them.

4) This afternoon I'll get a haircut, finish the laundry. This evening I'm going to see the new Korean release about Admiral Yi with The Stumbler and his lady. Tomorrow I'll pack and clean the house. Then first thing Monday morning make my way to Incheon for a 9:10 departure.

See you on the flip side.

Hi there, just found your blog. I like your camp ideas. Last camp I did, we used The Lorax movie to talk about different kinds of people and made Lorax sandwiches (open faced sandwiches with Lorax mustasche cheese, shrimp sausage eyes, and cheese eyebrows).

Nepal sounds like a blast. I had a plan to go but never went. I hope you can change your money. Some of the larger banks may do it.
