a stomach bug i picked up last week had me incapacitated during my last weekend in sokcho for a good few weeks. though i didn't enjoy being bedridden for over 48 hours, at least i wasn't blowing a wad of cash on a final hurrah before leaving. which is likely what would have happened if i was fit.
a full four days after coming down with the bug, i'm only just starting to straighten out this evening. besides some toast, i've eaten barely anything since i got sick, but have been constantly staving off dehydration with copious amounts of pocari sweat (an generic asian sports drink). i am hopeful that i will be 100% by the time i jump on a bus on friday and head to the airport. europe awaits, as do my friends.
