Pictures of My Apartment

I finally got unpacked, and I took a whole bunch of pictures of the new place. Click here to see what my apartment looks like.

As I said before, it is much bigger and nicer than I had expected. I tried to get a few shots of the ceiling, because it is really neat to look at, but I couldn't get it all in one shot. I did take one close-up of the neat ceiling lamp. I also took a few shots of the great view from my place. I love being able to look out the window and see a mountain.

I get quite a few channels on my TV, most of them in Korean. I do get CNN, which is nice if I want the news in the USA. It's kind of fun watching Korean shows, too. Koreans are so expressive when they talk, that often I can figure out what they're saying without having any idea what the words they're using mean.

No comments:

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
