The Only American

This post will be extremely brief, but I just wanted to share my experience with dinner tonight.  My coworkers invited me to a dinner at a restaurant in downtown Gwangju.  There were eleven of us, all being natives of english speaking countries.  Three of my colleagues were Irish, two were Australian, two were English, three were Canadian, and I was the lone representative of the Good 'ole USA.  And every single one of my new friends were extremely pleasant and hospitable.  I have never been the only American in any group, let alone a group of english speakers.

  1. I can't think of a better representative for our country, Chris! I'm looking forward to following you throughout this journey. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it! The Roper's are lifting you in our daily prayers.
