Thanksgiving Foliage

Sometimes, I really appreciate the fact that Korea has four distinct seasons.

I'm surprised the leaves have actually hung on as long as they have, as it's late November (Thanksgiving!! Too bad I can't find any turkey!) and the temperatures have gone down below freezing at nighttime.

I got back to Korea from LA last Saturday. It's been a rocky week, what with fatigue and jet lag and, of course, the fact that the weather had taken a drastic turn towards frigid in the couple weeks that I'd been gone. 

My sister landed in Korea two days before me and went to our hometown for the weekend before coming up to Ilsan on Sunday. It's been fun having her here, but it's tiring for both of us, as we're not in the best condition, and I've got work every day. 

For Thanksgiving, I think we're going to a buffet. No, not a turkey buffet. I've never been to the restaurant we're trying out, but we're going to be brave and see how it is. Hopefully, I'll post pictures. Work's been mercifully un-chaotic, so I've got a bit of time during normal business hours to do things like blog. 

I go back to LA in December, probably the first or second week, so I'm trying my best to be healthy and stay healthy before another long flight. You'd think that I'd have a million frequent flyer miles by now ... no such luck!
