50. Traveling to Shim Toh

Monday August 18, 2008

I left Nanumeh-Jip with Young-Soo Lee *halmuni to go to "Shimtoh" in Seoul. It was raining hard early morning when I said good-bye to all the halmunis. They were worried about our departure in the harsh weather. A nurse who takes good care of the halmunis gave us a ride to the bus station.

* "halmunis" in Korean, or "ahmas" in Taiwanese means "grandmas". (In Asia, elders are commonly referred to as grandmother or grandfather, whether you are related to them or not, as a way of showing respect.)
