A Visit from Taiwan!

Ann came to visit from Taiwan where she has been teaching for three years. We met in college oh so way back and we thought, hey we are in the same continent! So she came over for a weekend which was jammed packed with awesomeness. Even though I was really sick, and got to wear the face mask thing, we still had a wonderful time showing her Daegu.

Welcome to Daegu!

Pulizter Prize Photo Gallery Must See

Yesterday,I had the pleasure of attending the Pulitzer Prize photo gallery at the Daegu National Museum. “Capture the Moment: The Pulitzer Prize Photographs” are breathtaking, taking you back through years of history starting from the 1940’s until today. I felt like I was home again, reliving history. It ends this Sunday, so go check it out!
