The First Ten Things I Noticed About Korea:

1. This doesn't really have anything to do with Korea, but the planes from China look exactly like the planes from Russia. Coincidence?

2. The toilets at Incheon International Airport have seats that spin, so that they are sanitized for each new user- very nice!

3. There is ivy covering entire mountainsides- it makes everything look incredibly green and lush.

4. If I thought driving on the 401 in Ontario was scary, it was nothing compared to driving on ANY Korean highway. I'm still shaking from the experience.

5. Koreans are mad about golf, but there are very few courses in the country itself. Driving ranges, on the other hand, are everywhere and the nets go so high one wonders if anyone is ever able to drive a ball like that. It might be helpful for the big egos.

6. As you drive by busy highways, you can see ancient family burial grounds on the side of the road.

7. The sides of the road are landscaped! With shrubberies! And sometimes flowers.

8. My bathroom, as expected, has no shower- just the nozzle and a drain in the floor.

9. Koreans are the sweetest people alive! So so so so so so so nice.

10. I'm homesick and jet lagged and am experiencing culture shock I never thought I would experience. But I'll get over it.

Pictures will follow! Love you all.
