seoul jaunt and the subtle frost

SOUTH KOREA | Tuesday, 18 November 2008 | Views [514]

i was up at 5 am this morning.  showered in my cold apartment.  sipped half a cup of coffee before heading out the door into the freezing darkness of what felt to be the first morn of winter.  caught a bus to seoul at 6.  arrived just before 9.  made it to the canadian embassy and back to the bus station by 10:30.  had to wait over an hour for the next bus back to sokcho, which departed at 11:50.  back in my apartment at just after 3:30.  at work in time enough for my 4:30 class.  which happened to be cancelled.  as was my 5:30 class.  as was my 6:20 class.  :/

it has been the coldest day in sokcho since i arrived.  on the drive home from seoul, i spied patches of ice in the muddy puddles of every rice paddy we passed.  this well into the day at 3 pm.  and the sun was blasting.  for mid november, that's damn cold.
