The rains have come to South Korea, as typhoon season kicks off. But before they came I managed to get out to my old hometown of Hwasun for a quick visit. In this video I catalogue what has changed and what has stayed the same since the last time I was there–nearly two years ago.
First I’ll take you on a little stroll through Dolsan-eup and then I’ll have a nice chat about my last hospital visit.
Something I forgot to mention in the video is that IBS is normally triggered by psychological stress. When the doctor prescribed me a month’s worth of pills I asked if it was safe to drink alcohol while taking the medicine. He said that it was okay, but that beer was actually an aggravator for IBS, so it should be avoided.
Well that is just not fair Viewers. Ah well. I’ve made do with tea and meditation colouring books.
So when my pain went away in November, it was because I’d quit alcohol, NOT sugar! Who knew?
Spring has arrived and so has a new segment I’m calling ‘High Adventure’! It will be a kind of partner segment to ‘One Short Day’, but instead of spending an entire day in a big place, these will be shorter, more compact excursions to a particular place/event.
