At the end of the school year, I had the opportunity to visit my family in Scotland, where my sister lives. It was my first time leaving Asia in almost a year, and as such, I had one rule for the week: no rice.
It was nice to have the family all together, even it was only for a week. Occasions like this are very rare with my family as two of four kids live abroad. It was also nice to escape the heat and humidity of Korean summers; drive on roads without traffic jams (and on the left side!); breathe some fresh, pollution-free air; and be mistaken for a local.
