March 12, 2019, Busan-
We bid farewell to the Shin branch of my extended family, with a fine dinner last night and a heartfelt series of bows, this morning. After a few family photos, we were off to the Korea Boivins’ home, here in this crossroads port.
There is always a greeter, no matter where one goes in life. This figure is in the lobby of Aram’s and Yunhee’s apartment building.
After a fashion, we headed for Shinsegae Department Store, where we first had an American-style dinner, at Johnny Rocket’s, then went suit shopping-for me. The family wanted to gift me with a new suit, so they did. It’s a Spring through Fall suit, blue as opposed to my black winter suits, which have had to suffice up to now. A dress shirt was chosen, to accompany said suit. With that, and a coffee, downstairs, the shopping jaunt was done. I guess in some circles, I’m a wet blanket.
