Tesco's Swiss Style Muesli
Our first week at school seemed to go on for ages - and getting up at 6.30 to catch the 7.30 school bus has been a shock to the system - but the routine is now established and i inevitably got up at 7.15 yesterday (Saturday).
The neighbourhood is changing around us daily - an old style street in which the are still patches of garden growing plentiful chillies had a building demolished last weekend - a lovely pottery place which i am hoping has moved to premises elsewhere. I am hoping against hope that it is not replaced with another skyward climbing edifice which will block out the sun from the lovingly tended chilli plants. Pockets of green are already rare round here. We need to get out into the larger areas towards the outskirts - up in to the hills. We're just waiting for it to cool off a bit as it has suddenly decided to warm up again - needed the air con on today - the humidity was a bit much.
Another weekend has gone by with no attempt to learn any Korean. I need to join a class. I did however manage to find a time of the week when the pool is virtually empty - only 3 to a lane - and that was great. I also got to the Jagalchi Fish market - which was extensive and as fishy as i expected it to be. It is a part of Busan which has changed little over recent years while everything around it has moved on with the relentless march of progress.
I didn't buy any fish so we didn't have any for breakfast - or octopus. Bob was relieved that a) i didn't insist he come with me and b) i didn't bring any of it back here. So cereal and muesli it is and will stay.
