Hey There Friend!

Before I took off for Sweden I visited Mary Beth in Suwon, a scruffy city just outside of Seoul. She is a bit of a local celebrity because she is this tall, smiley creature who actually speaks a little Korean. Everywhere we went she was introducing me to new faces - the galbi heroes and their mom, the chicken guy next door, the doormen ... - and they all seemed to love her just as much as I do.

As a tall person, Mary Beth is naturally good at, and loves tall people sports .... so we found ourselves at a Korean basketball game.

We all got into the game .....

... and this kid's amazing two-tone rat tail.

I even met one of the players ... but he wasn't exactly excited to meet me. I think he needed to eat some of his doughnuts to refuel.
