After all the rain we've been having (especially on the weekends), I was overjoyed to wake up to sunshine (even if not to clear skies), and zealously went down to the beach to catch some vitamin D. I also took a book I've been reading on and off for the last three months. Come to think of it, I've only been reading it when I've been down at the beach.
Anywho, I didn't think I'd get burnt. I took sunscreen, but didn't apply it. This isn't Australia, where you burn in ten minutes down at the beach, afterall. So, there I was, contentedly lying on my stomach reading The DaVinci Code, occasionally turning, but not paying much attention to tanning evenly; I honestly didn't think I'd tan much at all in the first place - it was pretty smoggy. But burn I did. As burnt as I've ever been in Korea. Certainly not at burnt as that time in Madang.... THAT was burnt-so-it-hurt-to-wear-underwear burnt.
I don't know whether being burnt on one side of your body is better or worse than being less burnt on both sides. At least I'll tan. But for now (and no doubt tomorrow), I'm applying Aloe liberally, and trying not to let my skin have too much contact with anything.
Captain D. At least my body is happy internally. How could it not; I had Kebapistan for dinner.
