With its ubiquitous coffee shops and incessant rainy days of late, Seoul is poised to become the Seattle of Asia (provided it can produce and nurture local musical talent). Not that I mind in the slightest. The rain has been useful in helping me relax -something I'm loath to do- and it provides the perfect opportunity for nesting (even though the word itself drives me batty). The new apartment is beginning to come together. I'll get some pictures up soon.
