The Asian Persuasion
In July 2010 I sold most of what I owned, jammed a few things in boxes, and packed the rest into two suitcases. Like a thousands of other Canadians, I left my home country for a new life in South Korea. I had no idea what I would find there.
Two years later and I’m still in love with what I found. An alien culture, a mysterious city, and a whole region of the world to explore. I am addicted to Asia.
The Asian Persuasion was started a few weeks before I stepped onto that plane and has been a way to share a tiny sliver of what I’ve found with the world. I chose the name because even before leaving I felt as though this far off corner of the world was drawing me in and trying to tell me something.
I’m still trying to figure out what that is.
