Never look a gift horse in the mouth ...

So the saying goes. With that comes a bit of a cultural lesson. In Korea, a westerner quickly finds out from experience nothing matters until it is actually finalized and what has been promised is actually delivered. Talk is cheap, a dime a dozen here. Actions are proof.

That is The Jeju Big Swim’s findings with “promised” money from many people.

Kudos to our latest supporter Louisa Frank, putting her money where her mouth is. It is people like this that will ensure Sherrin safely finds her way swimming around Jeju.

We need several more people to act as Louisa has just done. We are not relying on Korean promises.
