I feel like my attempts at photography are slowly declining, yet I am doing exactly what I have been doing all trip! Maybe I should consider investigating the other settings on my camera!
Yesterday morning saw me embark on (hopefully) the final step of what I have now deemed the “Visa Saga”. For any of you who have had to bear witness to my tears and complaint about this long and complicated process, you’ll know what I mean. My final step was to send my passport back to Australia. I was too nervous to trust Fedex to find me at my dorm, so instead I spent ages on public transport to find their office in a far out suburb. You could tell people don’t normally walk there, as I had to walk in the mud on the side of a road through an industrial estate. Nevertheless, the deed was done. Now to wait for it’s return…
The Museum also had a side gallery featuring a series of rare images from North Korea. I found this incredibly moving, and somewhat distressing, the be reminded of the atrocities that are still occurring in that country today.
That evening I joined an English speaking Amnesty International group I found out about online. Everyone in the group is lovely, and it sounds like I can help out a bit throughout my semester! Afterwards I met up with a few friends for a drink and a chat.
And on a random note, here is me appreciating my dinner. Considering the lack of resources here in my dorm, I have been making some quite delicious meals (falafel, dumpling soup, curry, etc). I hardly ever see anyone else in the kitchen, and even then all they have been cooking is eggs on toast.
