Homeward Bound

Early Saturday and I am preparing to go downstairs for my final hotel breakfast in Seoul during this visit.  Actually, I only had a formal breakfast one other day, opting instead for a cup of cereal in my room most mornings.  I will board the final shuttle of the day for Incheon Airport shortly after noon, and head out to Okinawa, by way of Fukuoka, Japan, around 4 p.m.

Seoul and Okinawa are in the same time zone which keeps things simple.  Seoul is located 730 miles roughly due north of Naha.

Fortunateely Monday is a holiday (President's Day), so I will have one more day to acclimate myself to home before heading back to work.  It will be good to get home.

(As to my communications issues from yesterday, I walked to the Army Post Exchange here at Yongsan and bought a very small Sony netbook.  It was the final one in stock, so they even gave me a discount!  Maybe next time I will go for the iPad!)

The students attending Osawatomie, Kansas' public schools will not be enjoying Monday as a holiday. The day was sacrificed because of excessive snow days.

The blizzard of 2011 is the curse that keeps on cursing.

I actually saw some snow while in Korea - albeit just a trifle!
