From writer’s calm to Super Typhoon Trami… or not

Tomorrow I leave Korea and the blissful writers’ residence of Seoul Art Space Yeonhui, with its now-perfect weather and tiny forest in the city. It’s been delicious, as you may have noticed.

Pine trees, steps, and a brick building of Yeonhui writers' residence.

“My” writer’s residence in Yeonhui: a calm and peaceful forest in the city.

Before I fly home to New Zealand I intend to spend four days with friends in Nara and Kyoto, Japan. But so does yet another super-typhoon, alas. I’m hoping for everyone’s sake that Typhoon Trami drags its lopsided doughnut over an empty stretch of sea, instead of drowning the country yet again. I particularly hope that Trami spares Kansai International Airport.

What Typhoon Trami does next is anybody’s guess. What I’ll do is sign off the blog (truly I mean it this time) for the next week or so until I’m safely home. (And I will be.) Thanks for your company on this journey so far.
