I can't wait to take Emma there one day and possibly meet her family......one day she will be ready. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

You know, your pictures are trying my patience! ;) I can't wait until Sep. even though I must admit it's also starting to scare the living daylight out of me...! It so soon.

Was it a calligraphy for you in the pictures from Insadong?

I love the DMZ photo - we have practically the same one. Our tour guide told us they pick the best looking young men to serve there just to be photographed.

Mia!!! You make me laugh. September will be here before you know it, and then you'll be the one trying MY patience! ;) I'll be wishing I was there with you. :)

Toni, I'm not surprised by that one bit. Appearance is everything in Korea--and for that matter, it is in a lot of cultures.

Byrd's Nest, I'll be posting more photos every now and then as I continue to process my two trips to Korea last year...it's SO MUCH to try to digest!
