Aloha from Korea! We departed from Honolulu on Sunday, May 26, at 11:15 am ... and arrived in Inchon on Monday, May 27, at 4:45 pm. It's a 9 /12 hour flight across the International Date Line. We enjoyed two South Korea movies with English subtitles:
CONFESSION OF MURDER (link) an intriguing crime drama.
My husband met us at the airport and we caught the shuttle back to Osan Air Base - hour and half drive through rollings hills that reminded me of MASH.
Because the base is compact and the infrastructure is restricted, inbound personnel apply for "command sponsorship" to bring their families. We chose not to apply ... I wanted that extra year in Hawaii. I think I made the right decision as families live in three high rise apartment buildings.
On Saturday, my husband and boys are joining the local Boy Scout troop on the Task Force Smith Trail. It commemorates the route of the American forces to repel communists from South Korea.
On Sunday, we kick off our week stay at the Dragon Inn on Yongsan Army Garrison to explore Seoul.
The following week, we fly to China.
More pictures to come!
