So I have a story that I forgot to tell in my last post. I would like to preface this story by saying that I feel completely safe in Seoul. I might only be a few miles from North Korea, but that doesn’t bother me.
This past Monday morning was a holiday in Korea and we had the day off. I was sleeping late and at 10 am I was woken up by the most incredibly loud alarm that I have ever heard. I think it was at 10:20, and I sprung out of bed and thought for a moment that we were under attack from that asshole to the north. After about ten explosion free moments I figured the alarm was just a drill (a suspicion confirmed at work the next day). Anyway, I’d never experienced anything like that, and it was kind of …. fun? I don’t know, I guess it was just part of the experience so far.
