Hi from Korea,
I sent this from Japan a while back to the bridge club but have heard nothing back since and thought maybe I should try again here so that people are not potentially getting nervous!
I am fine and the school that I am teaching at is teaching via online conferencing so the amount of contact I have with other people is vastly cut down.
“Hello to everyone in Rotorua,
I am currently in a Capsule Hotel in Fukuoka Japan for my Visa. You have to do the last part outside the country.
I will be teaching in Cheongju and had shifted into the apartment last weekend.
I will be in Japan for roughly 7 days, depending on how long the Visa takes, though I have paid my nights in advance so I might just make the most of it and be a tourist.
I hope Paul and Maryann’s son in China is okay. I have been getting used to wearing a facemask. Korea is definitely keeping an eye on it. The school has now made all students and teachers wear a facemask while there.
I am also posting quite a few pictures on Instagram and Facebook. I will attach some to this email. Several are from the Palace visit in Seoul. The food stalls and the water way are in Cheongju. The meal is the first food I had in Korea.
It is very brown in Korea at the moment, their winters are dry and cold so everything browns off. Very little green.”
