Adventures in South Korea

Day 1: When my mother-in-law passed last month, we made arrangements for Blaise to fly home from Korea for the services. The Hubs, always efficient, booked plane tickets for me to join Blaise on his return trip back to Seoul. Yesterday (or today? two days ago?), my oldest son and I flew 4 hours from Newark to Dallas, then continued another 15.5 hours to Korea. We ate no less than 5 meals on the plane, because it was something to do, and damn that bimbopbop or whatever the hell it’s called. After a (masked) 55-minute taxi ride between the airport and our hotel, we were beat. At 9 pm, we ordered Room Service. Blaise was asleep before it arrived. I drank both of our beers. All I have to show for this trip so far is a dark, grainy selfie in the taxi and a pretty amazing view of Seoul Tower from our hotel window. Day 2: We grabbed to-go coffees in the lobby cafĂ© and hit Seoul on foot at 8 am. Somewhere between then and my 28,000th step, we visited Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Villa
