Chop Chop

Yesterday, I cut off all my hair.  Or more accurately, I cut off over 10 inches of my hair.  To start my 27 Things list off on the right foot, I decided last night to do something I had been wanting to do for a while, cut my hair and donate it to Locks of Love. DSC00960


Korean Foreign Policy Year in Review 2012: So Many Grievances…


Not-So-Normal-Norms, Part V

Bayon

After a stunning sunrise, and some pancakes at the “Lady Gaga” food tent near the lake, we headed off to the nearby temple of Bayon.

My Cambodian Christmas

I have so much that I want to share about my recent trip to Cambodia, that I really don’t know where to start.  I guess I could have started at the beginning, (I remember hearing that it’s a very good place to start) but talking about how I got super sick on the plane didn’t seem that exciting.  Instead, I decided to start with Christmas.
