We were really upset on Wednesday after hearing a presentation by one guy who we thought was cool. We spoke with him beforehand and he seemed like a nice guy. When he had his presentation yesterday we were thoroughly upset. He lived in Vancouver for a while, and his dislike of Canada fueled many of his jokes. The audience loved how Canadians are non-committal in their conversations, how most of them do pot, and how they always have a stupid glazed look on their faces. We spoke with other Canadians after the presentation and we were all furious about the speech. If we ever see that guy again weâ€™re going to thoroughly scowl at him, and mutter and point.
Luckily, on Thursday we didnâ€™t have a big presentation day. We went to Gyeonggi Provincial Museum instead. It wasnâ€™t really fun, but it was relatively awesome compared to the boringness of this week. We drew self-portraits (Simonâ€™s is exceptionally awesome, by the way), learned how to make proper shadow puppets, learned about famous rodents, and much more! Apart from the silliness and the fun and games, we saw some really really cool ancient Korean papers. We love books, as you all know, and even though we couldnâ€™t understand a word of what we saw we still knew that these books, with their browned pages, were awesome.
