Seoul, April 5-11, 2008

So here I am, back again. For a week, until April 11.
My new temporary cell phone is +82186961621 so feel free to call. So far I have only had a chance to check out the house I am installing the wall painting at, and have had a go at the jimjilbang at my hotel, the infamous Hamilton Hotel in Itaewon (where Power and Bjørn and Erlend went out for some gay party once) and I have met Baya and her friend Udo at club Volum last night. Tomorrow starts work and that's probably all I am going to get out of this visit this time around as it's short and lots of work. Byebye!

Kimchi alla Stockholm

I am in Stockholm visiting the Power. Today we walked all over town looking at mostly boring art. Then we found a korean grocery store where they had all sorts of exciting stuff. Power bought some metal chopsticks and we got some kimchi. The kimchi was very good! Much better than my super-sceptical look would suggest...

What is this?

I am in Stockholm visiting the Power and on my way here today, I discovered, in one of the outer pockets of my Sonar-bag, a small, folded paper hat or boat on some kind of glossy Korean paper.

Obviously someone has folded me this hat or boat, and I have put it in my bag (I'm guessing during our first three-week visit as I didn't carry my bag around much during visit number two.), but then forgotten about it. So what I'm wondering is where did this come from? And I apologize for not remembering the paper hat or boat's origin. It's very cool.
