The Diary of Cliff Jenkins, competent company worker:
Not exactly sure why the company wanted to have their meeting here. It’s the Korean thanksgiving holiday called Chuseok, and they scheduled the meeting in Busan.
Looking out my hotel window, it’s barren. Very few people here. Haeundae Beach has no people. The streets have nothing.
I’m waiting here for my compadres. They were supposed to show up 4 hours ago. I wonder if they got lost. I know that it can be a bit of a run down from Incheon.
And now the text from the boss, “Meeting cancelled. See you tomorrow at work.”
Well. That confirms it. It’s a lonely town tonight.
Interesting read. Just wondering if it’s a true story (from the aforementioned diary)
Hubby was stationed in Korea back when, he found it a lonely country.
That atmosphere of lonelyness and a bit of hopelessness, a bit of boredom, comes through very well. Good story.
