Korea


Finally got our computer going and have a bit of time left before our next flight. As mentioned, mom is now a seasoned traveler. You won't believe it, but she hasn't even taken a single Dramamine yet! The snacks and treats you provided sure have been nice, though!

While at Incheon, we had the opportunity to take a tour bus to a local Buddist Temple. The buildings are over 1300 years old as is the tree (see pics). It was quite a place and we really enjoyed being able to visit there. We really were afraid that we wouldn't be able to see any of the country after having come all this way. But it was really fun! And our tour guide was great! A young Korean girl named Kim. She taught us a little Korean along the way. After we repeated what she said a few times, she told us that it meant, "You are beautiful!" Then she said, "Thank you very much!"

I can see from your comments resulting from the comment we made to our last post because we couldn't get at the new post area, so we just made a comment along with your comments which triggered your comments about our comment . . . . well, you get the picture. Anyway, we're going to have to be really careful because of certain people who shall remain nameless (and likely family-less if it keeps up!) who just can't resist being really bad dogs!

Well, got to go. Next flight and last portion of our trip getting close now. Trying to . . . stay . . . . . . . awake . . . . . . . . . 'til evenin . . . . zzzzzzzz.

I saw that your plane left a little bit late. I bet that is not what you wanted, huh? By now what you probably want the most is to just get there! Hey, I was just wondering if you two slept at all on plane, or if you managed to stay awake the whole time. I hope you get some rest, and get ajusted well to the time change. Love Ya!
