Sitting here at the Incheon airport with my buddy Lee [aka Mr. Wiz], preparing to put ourselves into the hands of the Gods of Physics for our trip home to Vancouver. My time in Korea has been amazing — a great week of camp capped off with two incredible days in Seoul.
The wifi here is playing me a bit false, and is taking forever to load images, so I’ll just leave you with a few words of prose here and add the pix later.
So, just for the record, here are a few of the things I’ve done lately that I can safely say I’ve never done before…
Designed my own superhero logo. [Involves super-tights, of course….]
Donned Tweedledum pyjamas and had a Thai massage with two compatriots, who will remain unnamed to protect the guilty.
Washed my hands with mouthwash. [It _looked_ like a soap dispenser!]
Taken an elevator ride 800m in under 30 seconds.
Photographed just about every meal that contained an item of food I’ve never eaten before. [Searching out veggie fare in a carnivour-pro country was an experience in itself].
Taken photos through the glass floor of Top Cloud, some 38+ stories in the air.
Traipsed tiny alleyways in a dark, steamy city.
Written Canadian wishes on the wall of a Story Cafe in Seoul.
Eaten cake with chopsticks.
Seen buddhist monks, gandalf, stone Korean tigers, nuns, duck eggs, avant-garde artwork, automated ramen bowls, Elvis, snack-larvae, neon hansom cabs, Japanese lucky cats, Marilyn Monroe, canoodling lovers beside a man-made canal, brilliant butterflys, and every commercial good possible [except raisin bran…] for sale on the streets of this gigantic, breath-taking, amazing city.
Korea — thank you for showing me such a wonderful time.
When I get home, I’ll post photos and a link to some of the evidence on Flickr. But now…I board.
