New Pictures! (And Video)

Rachel and I went for a nice long walk yesterday. The weather has finally turned, here in Mokpo, and it looks like Spring has arrived. As always, Rachel took all the pictures, except the one where you can see her. Click each one for the large version.
Also: check out the video of a recent taxi ride through Mokpo at the bottom of this post.

This bit of video was actually taken with the digital camera, so the quality is not Cinemascope... but it does give a sense of the harrowing fun that is riding in Korean taxis.

Song of the Day

It's been a long-ish week with not much in the way of news or adventures to report. So, in lieu of anything the least bit interesting, please enjoy the Song of the Day: Lovely Day by Bill Withers.

Very little comment here, save for this small aside: that the ties of flesh are deep and strong, that the capacity to love is a vital, rich and all-consuming function of the human animal, and that you can find nobility and sacrifice and love wherever you may seek it out; down the block, in the heart, or in the Twilight Zone.
