Canada Day

Canada Day dawned just like any other Wednesday here in Seoul, and I got up an headed to work just as I do every other day. School was a little interesting, I talked about Canada in a few of my classes and gave out Canada stickers etc. which was kind of fun. Korea is so old, that some of my younger kids struggled with the fact that a country could even have a birthday, but for the most part it went off without a hitch.

In the evening we rustled ourselves up some Canada day tattoos and headed down to the restaurant located in the ground floor of our apartment complex.

We got there a little early and so decided to have a photo shoot while we were waiting for everyone else to show up. The plan was to have a night of Canada based trivia. Everyone showed up, we moved outside onto the patio and the trivia began! Amanda (Florida), Meghan (Ontario) made the winning team: The Crazy Canucks!

Amanda: "What's a Canuck?"
Two of the teams were made up of only Americans, and the other team was Tara and Janique. Needless to say, there wasn't exactly a fair distribution of Canadians. One of the American teams did... um... quite poorly. Surprise, anyone? The other team did quite well, all things considered, and I'm quite proud of them!

All in all, it was a very enjoyable evening during which we celebrated being from the best country on earth, and the Americans and Koreans around us felt a little jealous. I don't hold it against them of course, I would be jealous too!

Interesting story from the evening:

As I mentioned above, while we were waiting for everyone else to arrive at the restaurant, Fish and Grill, the five of us girls, Amanda, Laura, Lindsay, Meghan and Tara had a little photo shoot of all of our Canada Day tattoos and general Canadiana.

We are of course all stunningly beautiful, so you can understand how we would each whip out a camera and start taking pictures. It's a natural progression in the evening of course.

Well, apparently, Tara thought that she was being left out of the photo taking more than was fair, and wanted us to take pictures of her too. She didn't realise until it was too late however, that this would of course involve all of us turning our cameras on her at the exact same moment, each taking multiple pictures -- to make her feel included of course. And also because it was hilariously funny. Here is the result:

Poor girl never knew what hit her. She won't be making that mistake again any time soon. :)
