Hyounjoon Kim came to the United States from South Korea with her husband and her two children, so that their children could go to school in the American education system and her husband could study here. He went to university in Salt Lake City and then accepted a job in Boulder. She describes her home country, including some of the beautiful landscapes, the tradition of respect for elders, and the delicious food that she misses. Although Boulder does not yet feel like home to her (after only two years here), she speaks enthusiastically about the friendliness of the people she has met and her appreciation of the library as a place of gathering and learning.
