From Tuesday evening to Saturday afternoon we had our friend Sasha over. We met Sasha in teacherâ€™s college in Windsor, and now sheâ€™s teaching in Korea as well. She just arrived in Korea little over a week ago, and her school went on vacation, so poor Sasha was left by herself in a strange city in a new country. In turn she came to our home to so she could have some company, and company she found! Martina and Sasha went for coffee everyday and chatted (in English, wow!) over cappucinos and Korean scones, while Simon was stuck at work (Martina finished her summer school on Wednesday, so she was free to play). Martina introduced Sasha to some popular Korean music and Sasha found herself smitten by one of the members of the band â€œBattleâ€ (youâ€™ll remember them from our K-Pop Music Concert post). Itâ€™s a really catchy song if you give it a chance, so catchy that Sasha and Martina are planning on kicking it back to high school styles and putting up posters of their fav boy bands on the walls of their rooms. Sorry Simon. After some good old fashion retail therapy and girlish coffeeshop giggling, Sasha headed home. Keep learning those dance moves Sasha, next time you visit I expect a fully choreographed dance off!
