After not taking a vacation for a while, I recently took two…. The first was back on August 20-21, when I was in Los Angeles as a guest for Fred Claire’s charity golf event, and the second is now in Korea.
So, yes, I’m writing from Korea, where I will have plenty of free time to write down my thoughts. Previously, I’d been to restaurants weekly but never had much time to recap those visits. Now, in Korea, I will definitely have the time to do so for this particular trip.
The fight was essentially 12 hours, and that was a lot of time to kill. I ended up watching a documentary about the 1985 Chicago Bears, two episodes of Elementary (Season 5), and two episodes of Hawaii Five-0 (Season 8). And I listened to music on the plane. There was ice cream, a beef meal, snacks, and so on to keep us passengers fed.
Finally, when the plane arrived in Incheon (ICN), and I got through customs, it was time to get a little beverage… ahhhh the 7-Eleven store in the airport had Mountain Dew! Except… the Mountain Dew in Korea seems to be a bit… sour. Not sweet at all.
And oh… by the way, it was Sunday afternoon (just after 4pm – on September 9th, 2018) in Korea… and according to the information I had, it was a one-hour bus ride from ICN to my hotel. (It turned out to be two hours, actually… probably due to the Sunday afternoon traffic.)
Before catching the limousine bus to the hotel, though, I figured, it was early. Might as well grab something to eat at the airport. Ahhhh… by the time I got to the hotel, it would be almost 8pm….
To be continued…
