Good thing Margaret wasn't too bothered by this. She didn't worry much about using the public cup at this spring, either. It's near the river where she used to take her morning walks with Mrs. Kim, the director of Best Language Institute. Margaret lived in Mrs. Kim's spare room for the first 3 months she worked in Kangnung (Gangneung).
