I seem to be on a roll this week with photos of Korean women. So on one extreme we have the transgendered pop group Lady, and on the other Unit 707, ROK female special forces. I think they are likely a quite effective fighting force. I for one would do WHATEVER they told me. But then, I’m a firm believer in international cooperation and understanding…..

Oh yeah, I actually watched this soccer game last night. Korea beat Uzbekistan 2-1. I know NOTHING about this sport, but Koreans are pretty fanatical about thier team. Even in my ignorance of the game, I thought ROK played very poorly against an overmatched opponent. Which is why this account from The Lost Nomad was vindication for my opinion.
Anyway, I think seeing a soccer match in person is going on my list of things to do while I’m here. That and Korean baseball.
Saw my first Korean doc yesterday. Dr. Kim (what are the odds?). Used the International Clinic in Itaewon. Everyone I encountered spoke decent English, which is good. It was like going to a “doc in the box” back in the States, although rather than make sit and wait they gave me a time to come back, which I appreciated.
They did the weight and blood pressure thing then I had my “interview” with Dr. Kim. Not exactly an examination in the sense I’m used to. He sat at his computer, asked some questions, typed in my responses, had a perfunctory look at the problem areas, then gave me a referral to another doc for one problem, and some meds for another. Took less than 10 minutes. And 73000 WON.
Not to worry, there is nothing wrong with me that is going to be fatal (beyond the fact that I seem to be aging rapidly). Just some irksome things that are occasionally painful that I’m wanting to nip in the bud so to speak.
Big day coming up at work and I really need to be productive. Which is my way of saying adios for now. Oh wait, make that anyonghee gaesayo.
