Shin Ramyun Cup
in my room (Novotel Nadi)
Mission to Fiji : Day 2 (see previously 6.314 Bibimbap).
In Nadi. Here to attend a workshop on tobacco control, tomorrow to Thursday. Flying back Friday.
My third visit to Fiji (see most recently 6.108 Kovu Ura).
On the road for two weeks, two missions, back to back, Switzerland (done), then Fiji (about to begin) — just beyond the halfway point. Both trips involve long haul flights, inherently difficult due to travel time and time difference, but the business class compensates somewhat. Arranged the itinerary — MNL > ICN > GVA > ICN > NAD > ICN > MNL — to allow for three consecutive weekends at home, though only for a day and a half per stop. I’ll take my blessings however they may come.
For dinner on my first evening in town, the fact that I would settle for instant noodles — Shin brand no less (see generally 2.033 Roast Duck Noodle Soup) — should prove how tired I was.
Reminds me of that time in Egypt, when I had the same thing, but that time because I was sick (4.305 Sin Ramyeon…).
