Mauro came to Korea

Welcome Mauro to Korea.
He flew from Brazil to Korea. We all went to camping to see the snow that Mauro really wanted to see. We played several sports games on the snow. Mauro is especially good at table tennis. Even the weather was cold, the sports made him take off his jacket.
We all love you Mauro. See you next year in Brazil.
