This is Elaine. She is currently curled up on a corner of my couch, watching the pilot of Burn Notice. We took a poetry class together in college but not much else, and she has been living in Korea for the past year and a half, working as an ESL teacher at Kosin university.Elaine has been traveling in New Zealand, and the above picture was taken on a trail near Mount Cook. On her way back to Korea, she took a flight here to Singapore, and though we are not terribly well-acquainted, us world travelers have got to stick together. We shall be getting along splendidly.
