I think many people assume that when one goes abroad to a foreign country, it’s all excitement all the time. Like, time is suspended and the “normal world” has gone away just because I’m on the other side of the planet.
Not true. Days here on the Peninsula become mundane, too.
The other day, I took out the trash.
What does this mean? It means I took out the trash, but I’m settled into a normal life. In fact, I’m so settled that I’ve accumulated enough trash to take out to the Jungwon University trash facility. I now suppose, rather thankfully, that South Korea is becoming more and more like home.
I’ve taken out the trash.
Happy Sunday morning to America and geon bae from a different kind of south.
