It’s been freezing cold here in South Korea. The winds here are stronger than the ones in Chicago, and it’s not too fun when I’m standing outside waiting for the bus for thirty minutes. A lot of time is spent waiting and commuting on the bus because there is no other way to get around the venues that are spread out over two cities that are about an hour away from each other. When I went to the speed skating venue to cover an athlete, I also did not expect to find myself next to Mike Pence. — Anna Kook
