Have been running about like a crazy person, plus my mom's here! It's been a hectic couple of weeks, what with the Hong Kong trip and Mom staying with me a few days.

Still,  managed to get away on Friday after work with some people. We went to Eulwangli (을왕리) for a night, visited the teeny beach, fed the seagulls a ton of shrimp crackers (새우깡), and even managed a full day yesterday, after having gone to sleep at 6 a.m. as the sun was rising.

One of the most memorable things we did was visit the DMZ and peek over the barbed wire to North Korea.

I will have to put my thoughts in order someday to write about how South Koreans view North Korea, but needless to say, it's complicated.

I'm pooped and planning on a relaxing day spent in sweats!
