I guess it was about the time I left that comforts of my air conditioned apartment this morning and entered the sweltering hallway when it hit me…..”it’s f’n hot as ball$”. Sorry if thats overly scientific but its the truth. So much so that authorities issued an actual heat wave advisory for greater Seoul and with temps shooting skywards of 37 degrees celsius in Daegu, its probably not just me mumbling vulgar expletives as our shirts magically transform into less than flattering wetsuit tops. Now, the masses are keen on using parasols and umbrellas but i’ve been pretty good about soaking up the vitamin D until today. Slap a little spf on the old noggin and i’m good but the dog days of summer in south Korea are no joke…..just ask Eunee…she’s a dog and she’s not even trying to bite my eyelids while I nap anymore. Depressing.
