I'm here. The drive along the Han river at night was beautiful.

There are lit up red crosses on all the churches. I was told this is because they are "sanctuaries" in any bombing raids. (That'll preach!) It was inspiring to see so many lit up red crosses along the drive.

My room is nice. I'm excited to be here. I slept most the day - off and on. I discovered that there is a snobby lounge at the Tokyo airport....but there is also a public lounge with CNN...recliners and such. I slept.

It was surreal to hear safety messages in Korean and read Japanese subtitles......but I think I have the message memorized so I wasn't too worried.

First meeting is tomorrow at 9:15 a.m. Hard to believe I'm here....Korea! Wow. I'm humbled and honored and looking forward to exploring a bit.....not sure of the logistics of that....guess I better see about getting into the "system" so that I can get back on base once I get off base. ::snort::

yes you do need to be 'in the system' or on a guest roster in order to enter post once you leave.... fortunately you can go from South Post (where you are) over to the PX and Food Court without actually leaving post (walking over the bridge, unless things have changed in the past 6 yrs)...

Sis: Glad you are there safe/sound. Praying you time in Korea is great and that you feel the anointing tons. Soak up all you can and enjoy to the hilt!

I for one am happy to hear from you anytime.

love/prayers -- Mom

Renee - yep, it's all still on post...but I'd love to get OFF POST - that's me. I have this afternoon without activities planned.....I'll ask this a.m. at PWOC how to work it so I can get back on and what to explore.

I cannot buy anything at the PX here because I don't have a ration card......so.....I forgot my toothbrush and I'm going to need to figure this out SOON. LOL
