More like 15,000 miles. 15,000 miles worth of Frequent Flier points. Excellent.
I (Jessica) am on my way to South Korea right now for my cross cultural and I'm really starting to get excited. South Korea is the size of Indiana but has some of the most technological cities on the planet. Tomorrow, this is where I'll be - 13 hours ahead of Michigan and in Seoul (pronounced "Soul"). I even get to fly over the North Pole which is what is what is super exciting!
I am excited for an intense tournament of tic-tac-toe with Andrew. For the entire 13 hour plane ride. You may laugh now, but you don't know if I'm kidding.
Here are some of the things that we get to visit:
Yoido Full Gospel Church
Bank of Korea
Palaces & Shrines
Methodist Theological University
“Blue House” (The Korean equivalent of The White House)
Gates & Parks
Manna Methodist Church
Centennial Christian School
Korean Cinema (Some are 21 stories high!)
Sokkuram (Cave of the Buddha)
Modern History Museum
If that's at all overwhelming for you, you can imagine how I feel. And don't ask me what some of this stuff is. I have no clue. I talked a lot during class. Actually, that's more like Andrew made me laugh a lot (and for those of you who know me, I'm serious. A lot.). Ironic that we were the ones chosen to be student leaders on this trip, huh?
So, to wrap it up, I don't know how often I'll be around to write in the blog for the next month or so. As soon as I get back from South Korea (June 10), I'll be leaving for Aruba with my family until the June 20, just in time for Justin's wedding.
I didn't even plan that.
