Meow had to go to her new office and Pohang and I wanted to go find mine at the university. I didn’t really want to get up for some reason, but I did. I cross the river via a nice foot bridge at the end of my street near the river. It took about 25 minutes to get there, but I probably should have stayed in bed. I had no office (no one could even tell me where it would be in the future when it will materialize), no computer (so much for a class list), and no phone.

There wasn’t much of anything to do, so I walked back home (snapping the nice shot above along my way). I spent the rest of the evening fiddling with boxes, unpacking, and cleaning. Except for the walk out, the whole day was like an uneventful jaunt outside the pension which is how I feel about living hereā€”like it is real, but only temporary, I’ll have to go back any day now to my real house in Seoul.
