Seven o’clock in the morning and the mercury is already pushing 80 degrees.

It’s going to be another scorcher out there today.

Fortunately, I don’t have to walk too far to school (only a five-minute walk from where I live); not like it was when I was teaching at Yonsei and had to walk a little over a mile to get to school. To be sure, even though it has been really hot this week, I just don’t seem to be as bothered by the heat as much as I was when I was living in Seoul.
