I arrived in Korea eight years ago today for the World Cup -- or at least that's what my recruiter told me to tell immigration. I never thought I'd still be here eight years later. This may be my last Coming to Korea anniversary, as we're thinking of packing up and leaving. Korea has treated me well, but we have to move to Canada some time, and the longer we put it off, the harder it will be to get settled back home.
Thinking of this anniversary caused me to take a look back in my picture files. I don't have much before 2005, which must be when I got a digital camera. Pictures before that I took on my grandfather's old Pentax film camera. Those photos are at my parents' house. Unfortunately, those are some of the more interesting pictures that I wish I had digital copies of. I will have to scan those someday. Here are a few random pictures.
