Eclipse

Tomorrow, Wednesday, there’s a solar eclipse that will be seen in most parts of Asia, including South Korea. Here in Yeosu, we’ll experience about 90% totality, definitely not enough to look at the Sun with the naked eye. Here’s where the eclipse will be seen, courtesy of the Sky and Telescope website.

But, that could be a moot point. So far overnight we’ve gotten about an inch and a half of rain, according to the KMA website, with more falling right now. It’s supposed to last through noon, but the forecast for tomorrow is for partly cloudy skies. We’ll see (hopefully).

Yesterday, about 11:30 a.m., I went jogging for the first time in 5 weeks and did I ever feel it! Besides being a bit out of shape, I was also drenched in sweat after 30 minutes–the humidity and heat were almost too much. I don’t remember ever feeling the humidity in the Dominican Republic like I do here. I think one reason is that in the DR there was an almost constant ocean breeze. Here, despite being close to the sea, there are many mountains that serve to block the wind at times. Yesterday, there was no cooling breeze. Sure made it seem hotter than it was. More later.
