July was a more laid back month for me, even with celebrating my 25th birthday here in Korea. My birthday fell on a Thursday, so I spent the weekend before with friends at Everland and Carribean Bay, which is a famous theme park in Korea. Since I live in Suwon, I live fairly close to Everland, an hour bus ride. I spent my morning at Carribean Bay, which is the water park. I really enjoyed the wave pool and the lazy river.
Afterwards I met up with Tin, McKenna, Suzanne, Brittany, Alex, and Dan. We went on the T-express, the largest wood rollercoaster in Korea. We also went on a rough water ride, that was fairly tame since in Korea they had us covered with a plastic tarp to keep us from getting wet. After that we went to an "Italian" restuarant on the main square of Everland. We watched the show and fireworks after dinner. Tin and I left the park together and met up with our coworker, Rachel, and a former coworker, Charles.

|This cake was so yummy! Four different flavors!|
|And then at dinner, Tin bought me my THIRD CAKE! So many yummy cakes to celebrate my 25th!|

The weekend we went was the first weekend of the two week festival and it was packed with foreigners. It wasn't the warmest of days, with on and off drizzling all day and raining that night. We had a really large group of us, 15 total, staying in our room that we got. Since this festival was muddy, I didn't take many pictures. Thank you , BRYAN, again for risking your camera and getting pictures of us!
