Quick notes

Went up to Seoul today to pick up a colleague. The airport was a nut house!

I really need to learn to read Hangul. I feel just like I did when I first came to Japan over here.

Korean appears to grammatically like Japanese, but phonetically nothing like it. And the words Sumi da must mean the same as "desu" in Japanese.

In Japan they drive on the left side of the road. Here they drive on the right. yet Japan occupied Korea for over 50 years. I wonder if after the war, they had a big deal switching over. Or did they switch over?

The Korean women at the airport and in town sure are cute!

Saw a girl at the airport who was wearing a short skirt, hat, nice blouse, and she kept looking at me. My version is that she was digging me. Hers is probably that she could not figure out why I was staring at her with my jaw open....................

I still don't like Kimchi.

O.B. is pretty good beer.

Korea is not so hot as Japan was......I'd expected just the opposite.

My roomate from college was here in the 80's and regaled me with stories of getting "complete" haircuts. If that's still here, I sure can't find it!

I'm tired and need to go to bed.............
