There was a random African Grey sitting on a perch near the pier. Dean, who loves birds (the reason he became a veterinarian), couldn't resist communing with it. The bird was left alone as far as we could tell. There was a sign below that said people could take pictures with the bird for a donation.
So, Dean has gotten adjusted to the 15 hour time difference and is getting into the swing of things there at Seoul/Yongsan. He attended the temple there on Saturday, and took the subway system to get to it. The subway system is five floors beneath the ground, each floor a different line. I'm glad he is there figuring all this stuff out for me! He has been in classes and in processing, and will begin working this coming week. AND!!! He got us housing on the base (actually a satellite location off the main base, but complete with a small but adequate commissary, swimming pool, playground, etc.) He will move in July 8, and we are flying out about July 12.
We are excited, and are enjoying the pleasant weather here in Ramah in the mean time. Today the boys went with Grandma and Grandpa to the farmers market, where they sold live plants and produce from the garden (spinach, radishes, rhubarb, etc). They all had fun. I called up my BFF Ronelle and we went to Gallup to do errands and shop shop shop. I've taken the advice of a lady at Yongsan and have been buying clothing, since I likely won't have many options once there. I always feel so guilty shopping for pleasure, but OH WELL!
