We’ve had an amazing run here on the wackiest peninsula of all, and had a great time recently writing this silly blog (big thanks to the Kim Dynasty up the street for being a bottomless well of cheap comedy material).
Our time has come though, and after roughly 2,675 diurnal cycles (or 7-odd people years) my family and I are moving to the Sultinate of Oman.
We love peninsula life, as is well known by the
thous… dozens of people who’ve read the ‘about’ page of this blog. It really is cool to live life on the edge! …of something or other. Anyway, we’re off this time to the Arabian Peninsula. It just kinda worked out that way, which is lucky.
It’s been a touch difficult explaining our forthcoming move to a couple of our Korean friends and aquaintainces. We’ve learned recently that, whereas everybody has heard of Saudi Arabia, Oman is not quite as well known. One or two of my recent conversations have gone like this…
‘We’re moving to 50,000’.
‘It’s near Saudi Arabia’.
‘You’re going to make 50,000 in Saudi Arabia?’
‘No… we’re going to Oman’.
‘50,000. It’s near Saudi’.
‘We’re moving to Dubai’.
‘Yep! Sooo… who’s on first?
You get the gist. Anyway, we’re off in a week and since Korea has been such a big part of our lives for the better part of the last decade, we’ll keep writing about all crazy things Korean (our data suggests that most people googling Korea are men, and basically they just want to know about the hookers, so we’ll have a lot more on that of course), and throw in some craziness about our new home too… just as soon as we know something about the place worth ridiculing (without pissing off the Sultan of course).
