Salutations once again!✋ Glad to see you're still reading. :) Today was another wonderful day in the far away land of South Korea🇰🇷. We began our day by taking the bus to the Korean Institute of Machinery and Materials. ⚙️ There, we had a presentation, and went through at few of their labs- standard excursion stuff. Not so standard: we rode in their fully functional model of a levitating city train, EcoBee🐝. After going out to lunch together, we walked through Deajeon for a couple hours. And guess what? We finally figured out where Koreans do their groceries 🛒 (I knew it couldn't be at the Seven Eleven). We found this huge (city block after city block) indoor market area where they sell everything imaginable, from rice balls to ballroom dance skirts. 💃 We bought both. 🛍️ After that, we traveled to Deagu and have spent the evening chilling here. It was fun.

Today we saw something unspeakable... At 124500 this morning, a small man identifying himself as "the Key" 🗝️ showed up at the safehouse. He told us to get our passports and follow him to a transport vehicle stationed a few blocks away. We were transported to a secure location.
They checked our passports, taped off the cameras on our phones, and gave us tags. They told us that everything we saw and heard was strictly confidential.🤐 Then, they took us beyond a tall, barbed wire fence into what seemed to be a nuclear research institute.
Inside, a mess of wiring and pipes writhed up toward the ceiling. The technologies we saw were too unspeakable and secret to repeat. Then, we were briefed on the next steps in our mission (locations of merit, etc), and dropped back off at the safehouse. As if nothing had changed.
I can't say much about the events that transpired. All I can say is this: we have all come to see nuclear energy ☢️very differently.
Sadly, I wasn't able to get any photographs, but I did manage to sneak a picture of a large park and our dinner (🍜🍜🍜) afterwards. So, you'll have to settle for those.
▪️Vai al lavoro o a lavoro? ▪️
Che stana la lingua italiana!
La forma corretta della locuzione è “vado al lavoro” anche se si dice “vado a scuola” e non “vado alla scuola”. L’Accademia della Crusca giustifica questa differenza, con irregolarità dovute alla storia: nell'ambito della stessa lingua, infatti, può succedere che parole o gruppi di parole abbiano subito sorti differenti. E questo succede in molti casi, per alcuni dei quali risulta difficile dare una motivazione completamente esauriente e soddisfacente.
Dubbi? Mangiate Crusca.
The young Picasso of the blue and rosa period attracts thousands of people to Basel. We are incredibly privileged to be able to use and learn the cultural offerings of these public and private institutions.
Juerg Grunder, Nina Grunder and Pornika Ray organized a study trip along the theme of exploring ‘Art, Architecture & Culture’ through the destinations Mumbai, Delhi and Cochin.
