LDS church was an awesome experience in Japan! We were able to attend services in both Hiroshima and Kyoto and the ward members went out of their way to make us feel welcome and members of their congregation. We sang in English, and everyone else sang in Japanese! We were provided personal translators, and the whole experience felt very...
Venice Canals in Songdo
Much of the artificial city of Songdo, South Korea is modeled or recreated after famous landmarks located in other parts of the world. Incheon’s Central Park is a fair comparison to Manhattan. The Songdo Convention Center is supposed to resemble Australia’s Opera House, and from the right angle it's spot on. But I haven't even been to Venice, and I...
Chinatown in Korea

So, what happens when you lose all your cash and all your credit cards in one fail swoop? What happens when you lose your wallet? How do find lost and found in a foreign country where you don't...
Mommy and Me Baby Jjimjilbang
After today, my mouth hurts from smiling too much. I’ve been grinning ear to ear ever since Molasses and I spent our Mommy and Me activity for the afternoon at the Baby Jjimjilbang. Between finding Bingsu, Korean Shaved Ice, yesterday, and the Baby Jjimjilbang today, I could live here quite happily for some time. The only thing missing in...
