A public apology about cabbages

OH NO! Dig has corrected me and says I have got the WRONG COUNTRY and OFFENDED EVERYONE IN SOUTH KOREA.

The national cabbage is apparently the treasure of TAIWAN and he was there when he bought the plastic cabbage and had already left South Korea and was on his way to Hong Kong.

Which just goes to show that not only when Dig is in east Asia and I am down the sewage works I lose all sense of time and place, but that this blog is possibly filled with offensive crap.

If you were the Duke of Edinburgh you wouldn't care even a tiny bit about the cabbages...

Never mind, Grit! An American girl once asked me, "I have this aunt in Italy. Do you know her?" Thinking Germany and Italy were just about the same (not 1500 km apart)...so Korea...Taiwan - where`s the difference?! (Joke, my dear Koreans and Taiwanese - we long-nosed Europeans have just no idea about geography!)Come visit me for a cup of tea, Grit! I have an old TIME map from 1965...

I wonder why Jaywalker has a picture of a Belgian endive up?

Anyway, as to the cabbage, he still only brought one and what in the world are you going to do with a fake cabbage. Couldn't he have thought of a more original present, such as a paper umbrella to use when the sun shines to hot in August?
