vacation update

I just got news that we won't be getting seven straight days of vacation, after all: it'll be six. I had to make a deal with my boss regarding May 5, which is Children's Day in South Korea. I'll be working on the 5th so that I can take Monday the 4th off and have a block of six calendar days. This means I can still do my four-day walk from Incheon to Yangpyeong, but instead of recuperating for three days before going back to work, I'll have only two days to rest and recover. That's not tragic. It's also not surprising to find out that our HR department did the old switcheroo and took away one of our vacation days. Par for the course in nonlinear Korea. The only thing you can be sure of is that you can't be sure of anything.
