the plan

So the current plan is to depart DC on March 9th.  I will then drive to Toledo and sort through my stuff (also, I need to do my taxes. Why don’t we have a flat tax again?) to decide what to take.  Then, supposedly, I will fly out of Detroit, potentially through Salt Lake City and Honolulu, stopping for a few days to visit friends and family and get a little warmth.   Then on through Seoul (for a brief layover) and into Ulaan Baatar.

The annoying thing is that my funding comes from State, so I’m subject to the dreaded Fly America Act.  Luckily, I seem to have picked cities that are all Delta hubs, so I think I’m gold on Delta all the way to Seoul, where I’ll board a Korea Air flight (which is probably codeshare with Delta anyway).  Of course, this depends on cost.

I’m still not sure where I’ll be living, but these are minor details to be worked out.  Perhaps I can spend a few nights at the spa.

In the meantime, I’m getting rid of stuff, so anyone in DC need anything, do let me know!  Also, I’m trying to see all the last few sights that I never got around to in 15 years here, so partners-in-crime welcome!

    I’m going to send you the name and email of a kickass agent. He’s Peruvian, but has lived here forever because of his Mongolian wife. Tell him what you need. He should come up with some options for you.

    Luckily, the pollution is not as bad as I expected. South of Peace Avenue is usually OK, and south of the railway tracks is almost always fine, just further from the city. Depends on your sensitivity. If you can handle it, I would say better to live close to the center.

    I will also send a note out to people if you let me know what you’re looking for.
