J-e had this made before I got there—it’s the traditional clothing for women there, called phonetically an al-zye. I thought the pink on it looked a bit garish but in person it wasn’t too bad. However it was of a fairly cheap make and the glittery stuff was coming off already.

The weather in mid to late august was extreme – and I mean heavy. Hot and humid. I was told that it was rainy season and so not a good time to go, but it turned out to only rain one morning in the 10 days I was there. Sweated every time I stepped outside though, and in that way reminded me a little of the dead extreme of winter here in Korea—basically hostile and so spent more time indoors than would like.  (I’d still take the heat over winter though.) There’s a small coffeeshop chain that’s sprung up since the last time I was there, called Hylands(?) something like that.

Old school steam roller. You don’t see these things around much anymore. I love those things. 20th cent. archetype.
