Sunday, October 01, 2006Hi guys! Hope you're all doing well. I just came back from South Korea this morning pretty tired. I had intended to go to Aussie Legends pub and watch the AFL Grand final live (which was shown about 8am local time), but woke up around 1pm lying on top of my mobile thinking how on earth it got there from the floor.
Korea was very nice, abeit not as nice as Japan, but still has that far east charm I love so much. Two things that you notice that do get to you however, is that it's very smoggy and the traffic jams are horrendous. Not a place to live if you drive and you have high blood pressure.
The flight itself was pretty good, very busy. I was one of only 4 crew on board who weren't Korean or Arab. The Purser was pretty nice, but he was a hard-arse on one of the Korean Crew. It was kinda her fault though, there were questions in the briefing she should have known, and after getting the location of the First Aid Kit wrong she ended up getting assessed on the flight.
So... here's some photos I took. There's not too many though, so I hope you all enjoy them anyway.

Changdeok Palace, which houses the ruling area of the Korean Royal Family
The living quarters of the King and Queen of South Korea
The Throne of the King

The tour group I hung out with in Seoul, taken on Insadong street markets
Namdaemun market. Anything you can think of you need (and other things that you don't) is sold here, for the cheapest price around. You name it and you can get it.
Anyone for fish??? Looks tasty doesn't it?
Next up is a Kuala Lumpur flight, then anothr KL, then another KL, and then 2 Perth flights! Woohoo! Whilst I'm kinda shitty with scheduling's lack of variety this month, I'm glad that it isnt my time for a Lagos flight, and that I've been spared a turnaround for the 4th month in a row!
Also, just wanted to wish Florence, this really cool chick at PCEC congratulations - she just gave birth toa baby girl! All the best to her and all the other PCEC crew I miss so much. Will be seeeing you all soon!0 comments
