The first two weeks of October were a whirl of intense activity, filled with farewell lunches and dinners, trips to banks and post offices, and not a few hours of agonising over what things to take and what to leave behind.
|CASING THE JOINT. In the end, we amazed ourselves with what we were able to pack into the pile of suitcases that would be leaving the country with us, and we finally said a nominally-fond 'Adieu' to the tiny studio flat we'd been living in for the last 16 months.|
|IT'S JUST YUN-MI, KID! By a very happy coincidence, the woman who met us off the plane when we first arrived in Korea in late 1997 was with us again to see us off, 5 years later! Then, Yun-Mi was just the wife of our first employer here (he went on to become a politician)- now she is one of the people we are happy to count amongst our best friends. We had breakfast in the departure lounge at Incheon International Airport just before boarding.|
|Leaving Korea for Europe via a quick stopover with friends in Singapore, we headed to Germany just in time to miss the Octoberfest (which the Germans call 'Wiesn' - you can visit the official site here to see what we missed out on).|
