Feeding Mimi


today I wake up I eat breakfast.i remember Mimi.i go to see her.she is excited to see me.my mom asked our host for some food for Mimi.he gave us a lot of lettuce.i went out gave Mim her food and she eat it all ate it all very fast.

later we left in a car and met a tour guide on a bus.we were the only people on the bus.it was reserved for us.the guides name (a girl) was Shumi.she was really, really nice and I really liked her.we stop at a store to get some noodles because we were really hungry.they were really good. then we left for the demilitarized zone.our first stop was a train station.the story is that it was built when the south Koreans thought reunification was coming soon.but it is not here an the north and south Koreans are still threatening each other.so even though there is a sign that says "to Pyongyang" the train does not go there.if they ever allow the train to go there the South Korean can catch it and travel through North Korea, through Russia and all the way to France and Spain in 10 days.now they have to take a boat, which takes 27 days (by the way my mom typed that).

and then we went to a hill where you could see all the way in N. Korea.on the way up the hill we drove by a danger area that was full of land mines left over from the war.that i think go boom ba!!!!!!!!!!then we went into a theater and saw a movie about the war from 1950-1953 (which by the way 1953 is my dad's birthdate).we went to a musuem and looked at really cool things and looked and guns and helmets.in the next room the floor was all glass.below was an imitation of of the area between N. and S Korea (the DMZ) that is now a national park because there are so many birds and animals there now.there are no people there at all (except for the army dudes).then we went into the third Tunnel that was also really cool!!!!!!!!!! it was built sneakily by the N. Koreans after the war because they wanted to invade Seoul.i took about a million pictures of nature things because I really care about nature, plants and animals and I really really love nature.(Fun fact off my opinion: if there were no people smoking (glug), buildings, plus a big pile of yucky gucky snucky wucky garbage it would become a tropical rain forest

finally here

and on the plane

storm 81 °F

I am finally here in Korea and on the plane ride here it was really fun.me and my mom got a boost up to business class, and we each got to spend half of the time in business class.I got the first half of the plane ride and the plane ride was 10 hours long. I am mostly drank sprite. in business class you could lower your chair all the way into a bed and there were these two kids movies I watched.Ratatouille and Toy Story 2.There were also even games on the movie screen and there was a remote to control it.I wanted to do it but there was not enough time before me and my mom switched.On the second half of the plane ride in economy plus, one of the guys who was next to me treated me like a baby and the other one ignored me except when I told him he was sitting on my seat belt.when we got to Korea one of my moms friends(who was Korean obviously) picked us up.we went to a Hanok house and at the very first thing that happened was that i walked into our room laid down on my bed and my mom asked if i was sleepy is said no pulled a very thin blanket over me that looked a lot like a sheet and fell asleep.

I woke up at 12:00 that night and my mom walked in the moment i woke up.At first I don't think I knew that I had fallen asleep and then i wanted to kind of look around but my mom wanted me to go to sleep.Then I decided to read my book but i decided not to turn the light on in our room because I thought I might annoy my mother. Then a little while later I heard thunderstorm outside and it was raining really hard and so I went out there in my socks and just got all wet and enjoyed the rain and then I remembered Mimi the rabbit who was outside the courtyard. I played with her for awhile and went back inside the courtyard. I noticed that the lightening was right in front of me so i began to get a little scared because i was worried the place would light on fire because we are staying in a very old wooden house. So then I went inside and read a little bit longer. And then I went outside again and lightening struck me- well, at least I think it struck me. I didn't exactly feel anything. I came inside and read again and massaged my mom for 15 minutes, changed my sopping wet clothes. By now it was 4:30 in the morning so I went to stayed up a little longer and went to sleep.
