The rain today cleansed the Korean sky, leaving the air clear and crisp, cleansed by a shower from heaven. Rarely has the outline of Bukhansan’s mountains been clearer than they were today. Today was perhaps the fourth day since we lived in Seoul that the air was so clear and the skyline and horizon so bright that shapes appeared etched. The day was absolutely surreal with North Korea test launching at least seven missiles from southeastern North Korea. Not only did the sky appear more animated than usual–so did the City of Seoul. Tonight was just a bit more abuzz than usual. Perhaps it is due to the eerily clear nighttime.
