Chuseok 2017

Earlier in this blog I have written about Korea’s Chuseok festival that takes place annually at harvest time and includes the giving of gifts that to English eyes might look rather unusual (presentation packs of Spam for example).

A friend has forwarded me this link to a Korea Times news article describing how the current situation across the border has made survival kits a popular gift this year.  A sign of the times.

If it were me, I might be tempted to put a can of Spam in the bag to create the arguably ultimate survival kit.

Baltic or Tropic?

It is a September evening on the west coast of Denmark and I have just caught a mosquito in my living room. Surely this is a national first?

Breezing Along

Today is my six-month ‘semi-anniversary’ working on this project. To mark the occasion, Esbjerg has provided a Force 10-11 gale (63 mph according to the BBC Weather app) and heavy rain showers. It looks like a quiet night in to celebrate is in order.
