Saturday Night in Hyehwa

Said goodbye to the posse of K-girlfriends last night. Was typical of the fun silly lovely nights I've spent with them. We ate and ate a little traditional style place, then went to get star photos, then had a beer at a weird bar. Typical! Silly! Perfect! Getting star photos involves dressing up in the wacky costumes, falling about laughing, then eventually getting tiny photos taken in a booth. I had a tiara and angel wings... My friend Ahri went all out, as some kinda dilapidated geisha::

I will really miss these girls. Some of the best times I've had here were with them. I feel so lucky to have met some very genuine and generous people in Korea. Ahri and her friend Damon escorted me all the way home when it was clear I'd miss my last subway connection, which was great cos it meant I could give Ahri a bunch of household stuff I couldn't take home - she was especially delighted when I palmed off a 5 kilo bag of washing powder and a giant jar of honey.

That's a really sweet picture of your friend, Bonnie.

I hope you enjoyed your last day of work. You better keep us updated once you return to the motherland!

Dear Pia & M, the girl is an absolute honey, and hilarious.
At work right now and it feels like a delusion.
Of course I'll keep y'all updated on the Lament...

playing dress is always fun. next time avoid the thumbnail photos unless you have a giant magnifying glass to view them with.
