I'm writing from Seoul right now, as I just got back yesterday from my TKO in Tokyo. I don't have a ton of time right now (as usual), but I can say there was a good bit of idiocy which transpired there. Akihabara was absolutely incredible for me, with shops full of anime miniatures and unbelievable arcades. It was quite tempting to drop thousands of yen while we were there, as everywhere I looked, some item caught my fancy.

Time seems to have gone by quite fast, as I've been out of the country nearly two weeks now. I will spend another day and a half in Seoul, as on Tuesday I will be going on a DMZ tour during the day, and then heading out to Daegu, where Jeff's family is, and where we will stay the remainder of our time here. I am starting to pick up more Korean words, but thankfully the people I've interacted with over here speak English quite well (many Koreans attend English schools to learn to speak, for a fairly nominal monthly fee).

I'm not exactly sure what I'll do tomorrow, most likely spend most of the day exploring downtown Seoul, and catching up on some rest (I haven't slept much the past week). Hopefully in a couple days when I get to Daegu I'll throw something else up here, and perhaps I will have exacerbated the standing conflict between North and South Korea during my tour.

Did you get any action on your chin chin in Japan?

(Thank you Scott Hernalstien's wife for teaching me the Japanese terms that matter)
