We've reached the end of Solar, the three-day Korean new year holiday. Everything was shut down and people were at home with their families doing ceremonies to remember ancestors. Interesting. It made missionary work pretty hard for a few days. We've had quite a few meal appointments with members though, so that's been good.

This past Monday we had a multi zone full p-day (from 10:30 - 9 pm). We went up to a cool university campus in Gaya zone and played football, basketball and soccer. Then we went and had lunch together and a small group of us went and hung out at a bathouse. It was a tight p-day. The missionaries in both zones are all sore from the festivities. I enjoyed being able to play football for the first time in a long time. Since most of my friends are in the Gaya zone I was glad to be able to see them.

We also had zone conference recently and were able to learn a lot about being united with our companions, our wards and the Lord. It was a great experience.

It's been very cold here for a few weeks, but today is unusually warm. It caught us unawares and we're kind of hot. Strange....Another week down in the Land of the Morning Calm. Two more until transfers. Elder Bocchino
