The sibling arrives in Seoul

Tuesday, August 3 2010

At Incheon Airport
I've practically been begging him to come over ever since I settled in way back in 2007. Finally, it was decided that both my mother and my brother would visit me in South Korea, spend a few weeks with me and we'd travel back to South Africa together.

My mum wasn't too well, and her trip was postponed by a week. My brother, Darmesh then traveled solo to visit me.

I picked him up from the airport late afternoon and after an hour we arrived in my 'hood. I don't think he knew what to expect and before settling in to my apartment for the evening, I said we should take a quick walk down to the store to pick up a few groceries.

The flight from South Africa to South Korea is very long and I thought my brother would be hell tired, but he wasn't. Anyway, we turned in for the night around midnight - after assuring our folks that he made it halfway across the world in one piece :-)
