Well, I am back home in Canada. Compared to the places I went and the things I was doing, it is a bit boring here. I guess that has never changed, though.
I was in Korea for Christmas the last two years. I actually get to be home for Christmas. :)
The tree is up and there are presents under the tree. I have always loved Christmas. It is a happy time of year.
In Korea, Christmas isn't really Christmas. It is just not the same.
I will be going back to Korea sometime in the new year. I love Korea, but it will be very different this time, due to a rather large change (in my personal life). Hopefully I will enjoy it regardless.
Things change in Korea fairly often. Because all of the foreign teachers there are on one year VISAs, there is a fairly big turnover even every month. Most of my friends from my last time in Korea have moved on to other countries, or have gone back home. Hopefully the new crowd will be just as fun.

I hate goodbye

I am in Alexandria again to get my things together. I will fly out of Cairo on the 4th. Too soon. I am not finished with Egypt yet.
Most of my time in Sharm el-Sheik the past week, was spent at the cafe(s) in the Marina of Naama Bay, talking to Mohammed, Ehab and others.
Ehab came back to Alexandria with me and is staying with his brother, Mohammed, and his uncle, until I leave. He will go to Cairo with me, to help me with my bags and to see me off. I wish that Mohammed could have come back to Alex as well.
