Dad came to visit me in the ROK about a year after my mom and sister did. He was there in January 2014 for a week.
I taught him how to stay up until 3AM at the bars, how to use chopsticks, and how to drive a scooter.
He taught me how to read a label on the laundry bag and helped me realize that no, I had not been using detergent for the past year and a half – OOPS.
Here were some of his reactions to KOREA:
- It was surprising to watch the locals drink soju and just collapse on the sidewalks
- Loved the the fast KTX train and all of the public transportation
- Nice parks along the river walkway
- Very impressed with the restaurants and food
- Surprised by the racism
- Enjoyed the cat cafe
- We did a DMZ tour
