it's april 26th,2010monday, i'm at incheon airport
it's april 25th, 2010 sunday, i'm currently in incheon airport detention again...hahah...not funny? no, it isn't but i don't feel as bad as the first time. my problem getting home again. i don't think the temple thinks it's funny at all. i'm stuck again. last year they just put me on the plane. korean air asked me to p...ay when i got nyc. but of course i had zero dollars. same thing all over again.
part two: mr. choo, of korean air, explained to me, he helped me last year too, that maybe i am on a black list; that i should go back to nyc and apply for a religious visa--and that hopefully my case would be reviewed--i'd be removed from the list--then allowed back.
part three: year. i didn't know i was any list other than the five year ban--which incidentally was because the korean government had to pay for my ticket in 2005 plus have me escorted all the way to nyc. egads.
Now I am waiting for the monks to get back to me. I guess they're kind of busy. It's sunday. They haven't gotten back. Mr. Chu said that this is similar to what happened last year. In effect that I have been abandoned. Well Mark, dude, now you can say I told you so. But I am just going to wait and see. I would hope that they offer to send me to the... See More temple in China or Japan; and that I apply for a visa there. But as Mr. Choo, rightly pointed out, if it doesn't work out, I'd be "stuck" in China or Japan. And I'm not even a MONK!!!! Mr. Choo says the path, road to Buddhism is hard. right..... anyway I'm just a pain in the ass now. Now Mrs Cross can say she told me so....egads double egads!
