Thursday, 1st of April

April Fool’s Day was pretty quiet. A couple of friends on facebook posted strange status updates. One – from the USA – said he had become an ‘Australian millionaire’. People new to Korea often joke about being ‘Korean millionaires’ but I know the exchange rate between Australia and the USA is not so vastly different. Another friend, however, said she was moving to Sri Lanka. This friend was born in Korea, grew up in France, speaks French, English and Spanish, and I met her and her Irish boyfriend in New Zealand as they were travelling the world living in different countries for a year or two at a time. It was entirely possible that she was about to go to Sri Lanka… but I was busy between classes doing other work so I did not think about it too much. … Of course she was joking – Oh – I was fooled!
