I felt like writing something today which is unusual. Just to say I met someone in jail even more hard done by than me. He's a Korean bitcoin trader and we met in handcuffs on way to see the good lady psychiatrist. His crime - drug trafficking. The drug - a month supply of valium!
He's facing 6 years. A cleaner at his hotel thought it would be a good idea to report to the police a box of medicine with Korean writing on. The people in this country are below contempt. Even crazier - he got a new prescription for it here! Words fail me.
I got the shits because my wife sends me a benzo every month. My lawyer will check but pretty sure it will fall under the same category of banned substances for import. Just as well I found out in time. I heard from my JW that this month's package arrived safely.
He was told he should have declared at customs, who would have confiscated.
My cellmate will receive his sentence on Tuesday. He's convinced through tarot cards, dreams, omens and contact with spirits that he'll be released.
