My experience of visiting the DMZ.
True to her word, Katie, came to visit towards the end of the month. She was staying at mine for two weeks and we planned a short trip to Tokyo in the middle. I couldn’t wait! I headed to arrivals on Sunday morning, (feeling grateful for dodging a hangover from the salsa Halloween party the … Continue reading Katie Came to Stay

Work is going well and planning … Continue reading Settling in Seoul
