You know, sometimes I just take breaks from writing because I think that life here has finally gotten a little settled an monotonous.


Really, I only have one full weekend off in June, and it was last weekend. Eun Jeong and I used it to do some clothes shopping. She bought one shirt. This shirt was almost twice as much as the five articles of clothing I bought combined.

Okay, not that interesting. That’s why I haven’t been writing much.

Yet I was walking to work yesterday, and it was one of those moments that when my mind connected everything together, it was too late to reach in and pull out the camera. Now, I did take a pic of a bus driver walking to the bathroom with a cigarette in one hand and a toothpaste loaded toothbrush in the other. I wish I had gotten a pic of the guy yesterday. He was dressed in all jogging clothes–black athletic shorts and soccer jersey. He was taking his morning jog with a lit cigarette in his mouth.

Now that’s exercise.
