Korean summer

The girl next to me and the one in front me were my best friends in high school.

The three of us used to sneak away on Saturdays to watch French New Wave films in town,
drink tea and spend the night at my friend's mother's hair salon in downtown Seoul.
We talked all night about the film we just saw and fantasized living in Paris
or anywhere in the world but Seoul.

Seemed pretty wild and crazy then!
This early fantasy is what took me to Paris so many times and for a whole year
many years later.  - 'twas a dream come true.

 I wonder what happened to them all. That's me standing on the left.
