Happy Teacher's Day

Well, I made out like a bandit on Teacher's Day. All of the public schools were closed today but the private academies were still up and running.
Students throughout the day presented us with a multitude of presents. Some of my more notable gifts included socks, a belt, cologne, aftershave and skin lotion (from different students). If Sarah Lee invented the pound cake, then Korea invented the ten pound cake. This monstrous thing is a Korean rice cake, deok. It and three pizzas were given to me for lunch for the teaching staff. The cake has a little bit of everything in it maybe including the kitchen sink. It weighed so much that the handle on the carrying case broke on my way home.
