Home sweet Korea

We made it without incident to Korea. We're staying at the Howard Hotel just outside the army base. This is a very Americanized area but with enough differences that you know something is not quite right.

We ate breakfast on base this morning for $1.70. I've never had biscuits and gravy that cheap before and they were pretty good.

The hotel is nice with a TV and internet connectivity. There are 70+ channels and even a few English ones. Luckily the toilets are not the Japanees style sit on the floor. I did see those in the Tokyo airport, but opted not to press my luck and try to use them.

It's pretty cold here right now compared to the Northwest, but it's not really bad. The worst part is the smeel which some of the others said I would get used to before the day is over.

There's a church right next to the hotel and a large Baptist church just across from the base. Korea seems to be a thouroughly Christianized country so I shouldn't have trouble finding somewhere to worship on Sunday and maybe even Wednesday.

That's all for now.
