Hello from Korea!

Well I safetly made it to Korea! After flying from YVR (Vancouver) to SFO (San Francisco) on a 2 hour flight, I had a 3 hour wait until my flight to ICN (Korea). The duty free shops there we nice, but I had to control myself to not buy too many things. My 13 hour flight from SFO - ICN was not that bad. I flew United Airlines which was ok. The problem was that my TV was broken so I could not watch any movies :(. I met a nice Korean mother who sat beside me and she had told me she went to visit her daughter who is studying in Las Vegas. The flight was pretty neat because we kept chasing the sun, meaning it was always bright out. When I arrived at ICN airport I met Steven and Il Jong who is Steven's helper. Steven is the main director for the Soonchunhyang University global exchange program. At the airport, I had met a few of my classmates. All very friendly and from all over the place. Mostly USA and Mexico though. We waited around 3 hours until our bus came, and that was another 2 hour ride to campus. We got assigned our rooms and I quickly showered and passed out. Pictures of my journy will be uploaded once I get my laptop working. Right now I am using the community computer in the lobby of the Global Village

Pictures of San Francisco airport and ICN airport. Didn't get much of a chance to take some nicer ones, so these will do!

This is my dorm room. Nice and neat, for now.

My First meal in Korea was at this restaurant. It was very good and cheap. $3.50usd for a big plate of rice and pork cutlets.
