Though the weather was not warm, our outings were great. At Seoul station Rian, Susan's friend, joined us too. In spite of her busy working weekdays she was so eager to sketch Seoul, which inspired us so much. She enjoyed Korean food too. We had Korean traditional pancakes even at Gwangjang market, so crowded one. Much thanks for all her generous understanding about Korean culture and people. Hope her to come again soon and to be able to sketch all together! 

Thank you so much, Susan, for your pretty presents and drawing too! 

네번에 걸친 수잔님과의 스케치를 마치고 이제 그림을 올립니다. 추운 날씨에도 불구하고 주중에는 영어 선생님으로 일하시면서도 주말에 쉬지도 못하고 스케치에 임하는 자세를 보고 감동받았어요. 외국 생활을 많이 하셔서 우리나라에 대한 이해도 높았으며 특히 한국 음식을 아주 좋아하셔서 식사가 즐거웠습니다. 캐나다에서는 김치도 담가서 드신다고요. 광장시장에서 많은 인파로 긴 줄을 선 끝에 빈대떡을 사서 청계천에 나가 먹은 기억이 오래남겠습니다. 그림뿐만 아니라 많은 이야기를 하면서 즐거운 시간을 보냈으며 선물까지 마련해 오시기까지 해서 감동받았습니다. 앞으로도 한국에 자주 오셔서 많은 분들과 스케치 할 수 있기를 바랍니다.  감사합니다!

Dear BH and YH,
I am home in Vancouver, safe and sound. How wonderful to see all of the work you posted on the website documenting my incredible trip to Seoul. Thank you so, so much for showing me the best and sometimes "secret" sketching places around the city. You sure know great indoor sketch locations during the cold weather! I want to thank you for taking such good care of me both for sketching and also eating delicious Korean food. I feel like I understand things Korean so much better now. Seoul is such an exciting city with so much to draw. I hope we have a chance to meet again sometime.

Thanks again for your incredible generosity. You both inspired me so much.
best,
Susan

Wow...It's so nice to hear that you're at home now after weeks' away. Meeting and sketching with you was a great pleasure for both of us too. Though the sketching places were same as before we could draw new ones every time. Above all being with a great sketcher like you inspired us so much. Your deep consideration to communicate well must be appreciated. By your using easy English words helped us understand better. Much thanks again for your pretty and precious presents for painting tools and your drawing which will be kept gratefully. Hope to have chances to meet you and sketch together in the future! :)
