Setting up the picnic
Strange river scuba diving man

Just monkeying around!
Lady setting up flags and kicking us out of our spot!
When you buy ice cream in SK you get some dry ice with it for the transport home. We decided to play with our dry ice!
The mysterious dry ice!
A beautiful tank we found to make Sputnick jealous, bubbles everywhere!
Beans, it's what's for dinner!
Monday was a holiday and tonight is Thursday and that means it's almost time for another 3-day weekend!! This Monday is Buddha's Birthday, who knew? But anyway this past Monday's holiday was grand (it was Children's Day, I think they should start that holiday in the US).
It was a beautiful day so Mikey and I packed a picnic and went down to the river. In between two parallel walking paths there are workout stations, basketball and some sort of volleyball stations interspersed with big patches of grass. We laid out ate, lots of food, read and played frisbee. It was very odd but for sometime we felt as though we were in a ghost town there were hardly any people. I guess it's just not common to set up camp down by the river.
At one point, a man rode up on his moped in this odd looking suit. He parked hoped off his bike and within minutes was in the river scuba diving! Oh yea, there's no swimming in the river. We speculate he was collecting something because it looked like he came out with a bag full of something but who knows.
Later we got kicked out of our spot by some old men and women who were playing croquet or something like that. All and all great fun.
Later that day we got a call from another foreigner (Rian) who invited us out to dinner with some people. Even though we had low funds we decided to take the opportunity to meet some new people and go. Yummy Korean food (pretty cheap too) and then off to Bobo's (haha).
Bobo's is a place that we thought was a dance club when we walked by one Saturday night. Turns out it's a pretty low key place (at least on Monday nights) that has pleather couches and pillows of black, red and white. Looking past the decor it was a lovely evening where we got to meet even more foreigners!
Oh yes, and how could I forget, Happy Parent's Day! (That's today's holiday here in the SK)
