Godspeed Eomoni!May 29, 2007
Haven’t had much time to write recently. We had a great visit from our friends Chris and Carrie. During their time here, we did a temple stay for a few days, saw the ancient Silla capital of Gyeongju (or Gaengju – as the local dialect puts it), took in the Buddha’s Birthday Lotus Lantern Parade and Concert extravaganza, and…. and…. got sick for a few days.
Other than that, we’ve visited with relatives, had fun with both our hyeongs, and gotten some good running miles in. Only one month left in the fulbright, then an extra month on my dime, then onwards to Appleton (or, in Korean it would be sagwachon).
But in the biggest news, it’s been a long hard slog of a late winter/spring for our Mom. Two surgeries, recovery, taking care of Grandpa, etc. etc. She is recovering again right now, and we wish her the very very very best.
MOM~ Get well soon!
