A week that could have been different

Everyone here has been talking about the exchange rate, and I finally decided to transfer money as I saw my savings in Korea diminish each day. I think I may have managed to transfer out on the single worst day (the exchange rate got better by a lot the following day, groan). But it did raise a larger question involving why we are not paid in dollars (and I decided to be the bad guy and raise this point. That is a whole other fiasco, you can partially blame cultural differences on that one).

The week also ended with a crazy night of drinking with the heads of the global strategy group. I had to be escorted home by someone who was also completely hungover the next day. Needless to say, I barely moved from my couch until 1 pm the following day. Could have done without that!
