First Day in Incheon
After lunch Eunji got us all a subway pass and we caught the subway to the under ground mall. It had many stores with clothes, shoes and cell phones. It was very crowed and busy being on sunday. The jet lag was catching up to us and EunJi could tell we needed a little rest so we found a Starbucks. We rested there for an hour as we talked to her about Lander and Korean culture.
At dinner Mr. Choi ordered 4 bottles of SOJU... a korean liquor that compares to vodka. We all took shots. I had 7, orders from Mr. Choi. It was a light tasting liquor. After dinner we were tired but not ready to be in for the night so we went to karaoke. Much to my disappointment they did not have "Wagon Wheel" but I made up for it by singing "Sweet Home Alabama" some NSYNC and Christina and ending with "Tik Tok."
Today was am amazing experience. I loved every minute of it. Being in a country that I know very little about and speak zero of their language isn't as scary as one may think. It is all a learning experience and I am very fortunate that I have this opportunity. I know the next 5 weeks will just as much fun as my first day.
