Visitors 3 & 4 from Minnesota

Summer and Kady arrived the 28th of May to see me in my current natural habitat. Having just come from a months long tour of Southeast Asia they were happy to simply sweat less profusely  in temperatures of less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

These visitors proved easily satisfied with most anything. The usual Korean fare of meat, cabbage soaked with red pepper, rice, and soju, no doubt tasted better given their lack of need to wear a headband due to the copious sweat covering their brows.

The hiking (pictured here), the witnessey activities (some of which involved going out to the boondocks), a short trip to Seoul, even the day of answering 6th graders probing and all too personal questions, all had a wonderful aura about it simply due to the relative temperate comfort in which they were experienced.

Given this the two visitors left with an impression that life in Korea was indeed wonderful and unique. Nothing like life in Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, or Cambodia. And certainly, absolutely, without a doubt, nothing like our lives in Minnesota.
