Made It!

I'm writing today from Suwon City, South Korea! The three flights and all the airport waiting just flew by!

Just kidding!

From when Gina and I left Sheboygan to when we arrived at our school in Suwon, we clocked around 30 hours of travel time. Actually, most of the trip went quickly except for the last two legs, which were the 12-hour flight from San Francisco to Incheon airport in Seoul, where neither of us slept much at all, and the two-hour car ride from the airport, where all we wanted to do was pass out on a bed and sleep for a zillion years or so. And we did!

I meant didn't. Instead, we were taken to our school and introduced to the staff, managers and headmaster, all of whom were very well-dressed in formal clothes. We were dressed like balls in our airplane/travel clothes, consisting of jeans and a shirt. After that we walked to our new apartment, which was fully furnished just like we were promised!

Nope. And I promise I'm done with the jokes. Maybe.

We were promised a double apartment with a refrigerator, gas range, TV, washing machine, cooking and eating utinsils and, most importantly, a bed. Was there a bed? No, there was definitely no bed. We're hoping to get a bed today at the earliest, but probably tomorrow or sometime next week. We just slept on the floor.

Today, Saturday, has been loads better. We've gone shopping at a few grocery stores, bought new stuff for our apartment, and are leaving right now for lunch. Check back soon!
