1 week & 6 days
I no longer feel as if I am on vacation.
My apartment is beginning to look like home.
The city has welcomed me.
I am extremely lucky to have an old friend here. He has introduced me to some amazing folks and quite amazing music. Last weekend I went to a show at a place called the basement. I walked into familiar music (The XX) playing in the background. Greeted by his friends and genuine smiles from everyone. It was excellent to hear something new and fantastic.

Rhlyon’s band is still pretty new and working on getting some music out. I will have something asap
This weekend I went to a nearby city, Daegu. Another show at a venue called Club Heavy. The bands played in a circle with the audience in the middle. Each one played one song and then it rotated to the next artist. One band did a Pavement cover and they were Korean so it was pretty freaking sweet to hear that!
Spent the next day at a few thrift stores, mainly just walking and observing.
Lots of hellos and goodbyes. A lot of new teachers are coming and others onto their next adventure.
Today was gloomy, but appropriate. Went to a small perfectly shaped art gallery. Wonderful exhibit. The artist was there herself to talk about it.My friend Rhylon is working on getting the music & art scene with the foreigners and locals together. Exciting.
First the city.
