A Year of Living Positively-Day 239

Last night I forewent my online Korean lesson so as to pay attention to Stephen. He really wanted to treat me to dinner somewhere nice. I had in mind a chicken soup place I’d seen from a seat aboard a passing bus before, but we could not locate it. Maybe it has shut its doors. Anyway, we kept walking and settled on a barbecue duck place. We lucked out. It has one of the best bargains of the city: single hanshik (traditional Korean servings) with individual plates of barbecued duck. There were a lot of very tasty and fresh side dishes, including a fermented bean soup with a bowl of rice. I bought some raspberry wine for the occasion, though S does not drink.
This morning, I said farewell to S and sent him on an express bus to Seoul. Fortunately, Pastor J will be there to meet him as he is arriving aboard a bus from another city around the same time. A migrant worker’s center leader, the Pastor will take him to a rally for migrants’ rights before guiding him to his hotel for the night.
S seems quite tuckered out. He was not as enthusiastic today about going to another demonstration as he was last week when he arrived.
As you may have seen, I have had time today to upload photos into the blog entries and get all the entries along with the word-processing document file up to date. After completing that work, I decided I may as well write the report of the ILPS Peace Solidarity Mission. I had to stay close to the computer and phone to stay in touch with S and the Pastor this afternoon and make sure they connected. I finished the report and think it is satisfactory enough to relay to our inner circles.

Except for doing a wash, I am delaying my return to my own regular life here until tomorrow. I am forced to address some school work soon, as there is a time limit to uploading the syllabuses to the intranet this week. For now, I’ll just veg out with TV this evening.
