Silent Sunday



I know it's supposed to be 'silent' Sunday, but I didn't want anyone to think we were all under attack here in Seoul or anything.  It's just that I've been in this subway station many times before and this is the first time I'd ever noticed this sign.  I suppose all of the crazy rhetoric is starting to seep into my subconscious mind.  At least I know where to go now.

When I lived in Seoul, one of my friends from college was stationed there with the Army. Just out of curiosity, I asked him if the Army had an evacuation plan for foreigners should the cease fire end. He replied, "Yes, but not for you. You English teachers are on your own!" Nothing like being told that you are a second class citizen :)

Yikes! We've been told the embassy does have a plan, but I understand the Army just takes care of their own. That being said, since MrL's company is here doing work for the US Army, we do have base privileges and ID cards, so we'd be able to evacuate with the other military dependents if other arrangements weren't made by the company already. GM, I understand, has a really good system in place, although I don't know any details. We heard they even supply a company bus to pick kids up from school in case of emergency. Sounds like a luxury to me - I would have to drive across town to collect #2, and it already can take 45 minutes in rush hour traffic - can you imagine what it would be like under emergency circumstances?

Fingers crossed this is all yesterday's news soon enough, it must be really stressful :/

Yes, it really is. I still don't feel like we're in any danger, but the constant reminders and discussions and news headlines are starting to wear me down. And of course, one doesn't want to worry people by talking about the stress of it all...*sigh*
