The trip is over. It was amazing. You should ask me about it sometime. It's crazy how in a month, you can get so accustomed to driving (and walking) on the left, to differences in etiquette (hand shaking, giving money, pointing), to seeing certain ethnic groups and hearing their languages. Good times.
During my first layover, I took some trains to a palace in Seoul. I totally recommend the visit. It cost about 3 dollars to get in, and then there was a free English tour. If you can navigate the trains, then you can do it. Why are trains so different everywhere?
During my second layover, I slept in the floor of JFK airport in NYC. It wasn't as exciting.
Small update and new album.
