The cold set in today. Starting tonight, we drop below zero degrees celsius. It's no joke; I can tell already that winter takes no prisoners. I only got five hours of sleep, but was able to successfully transfer funds online (internet banking in Korean is hard!), finish translating a website, stop by a paper exhibit, and schedule visits to two papermills in Wonju. I'll go Thursday and hopefully get there and back in one day. If not, I'll still get back in time on Friday for a Fulbright Forum. The Buddhist nun today said, "you came here to make paper but you're doing everything but!" Ah, I'm so very good at skirting my path.

Tomorrow I help Melissa escort Whirimako Black, a Maori New Zealand singer. Tonight's ambitious scheme: early to bed.
