in this installment, james finds free internet

Hooray for free wireless lounges at Inchion Airport, and for free computers (for 30 minutes at least).

Inchion is, so far, the largest airport I've had to navigate. I'm sure Narita was bigger, but I just popped from gate to gate so it wasn't so bad.

When you walk into Inchion, there are giant islands marked with letters, and there are about 2-4 different airlines in each island ... and you have to walk around them to find which ones. It's really quite intimidating, there are about 8 of them, stretching through the "great hall".

I made it through security ok, it turns out there was a nail file in the shaving kit I bought ... right next to a pair of sharp scissors I also failed to notice.

They took the nail fail and left the scissors. You know, terrorists DESERVE to win.

Oh, and for all of those planning on visiting Korea, it's notorious for being the hardest Asian country in which to use a foreign debit card. Found that out the day before my trip. *sigh*

Luckily all the ATMs in the airport are global.

That's it for now, I'll try and post in Cambodia!

Oh boy, you're going to Cambodia ! Your mother needs our prayers....

David ( our son ) and I read your blog together last night and you had David laughing very hard ! We still think your comments about trying to find Matthew's apartment and the fire escape rope are gems, and I think you should do a comedy show sometime and incorporate these ! Looking forward to the further adventures of JAMES IN SPACE ! KathyB.
