Toyko, then Seoul
We arrived in Tokyo at about 4:30 p.m. local time on Saturday, which gave us ample time to visit gift shops and sushi bars in the terminal.
Among those wanting to have real, authentic sushi was Deepak. Be sure to check out this You Tube video of him and his California Roll: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scmWz6Homm0&feature=channel_page
For many others, it was time for people watching. We clearly now have arrived in Asia.
After another two-hour flight, we finally made it to Incheon, an international airport located on an island about 40 minutes away from our hotel (and during light traffic). Professor Kang and our guide, “Jacqueline,” warmly welcomed us.
Tomorrow, after sleeping in, we will set out for cultural sites, particularly Gyeongbokgung, the "Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven."
