Suwon Travel Stories
A great night with the fellow ex-pats
Last night I had a really nice first night outta my country. I went searching for sissors so I could cut off my safety latches on my bags. And walked in on about 15 people having a banquet of really delicious looking food. The people were from Indonesia, China, India, Pakistan etc. But I was all gross feeling so I said maybe after my shower if it was okay. So I jumper through the shower... btw the shower has walls but they are all glass, I was...

Arriving in Suwon
Well I arrived in Suwon, on that sweet assed mini bus... and then had to get a taxi to Ajou. All was relatively easy- carting all the stuff I bought with was the most difficult.

It's one of two things: an extended version of the flu sans fever and severe joint aching or deux: I've been food poisoned by the kimbap shop. Now this is apparently quite commonplace in this fine fine country. I believe it has some...

Superbowl?? what's that?
So yesterday was Superbowl Sunday in Korea, but alas! no Superbowl. This weekend was a bit of an odd one. Besides the new years weekend of snowboarding (which was, yes fun, but sadly I spent most of it on my ass...from the snowboard dad, not the drink! :P ) I haven't really been going out as much, just kinda bored with nothing to do but drink, so I've been staying in a lot, reading a lot and trying to get back into writing. So Saturday rolls ...
