Rainy Days

Today Martina bought a new umbrella, and just in time. She’s been looking around for one for as long as we’ve been here, touching and testing many of them out. Korea has a big umbrella culture, since it rains throughout most of the year. In Canada we can get away with bad umbrellas – we get caught in the rain maybe once or twice a year, and if our umbrella sucks we gripe and grumble about it and promise ourselves to buy a new one next time. Then it doesn’t rain for a long time so we forget about buying a new umbrella until the next rainstorm hits.

Anyhow, we got caught in the rain, but right (and I mean RIGHT) after Martina bought the umbrella. Perfect timing. What she drew is a fairly accurate depiction. More pictures of it once we’re outside (it’s bad luck to open umbrellas indoors, after all).

  1. It’s a superstition here in North America at least in the U.S and Canada. Basically, if you open an umbrella indoors it credits you with 7 years of bad luck.
