#Motorbike, Motorbike!

#Motorbikes, motorbikes go so slow. . . 🎤 Motorbikes, motorbikes go so fast . . . Motorbikes, motorbikes put on the gas!🎹

We used to sing that when I was a kid like Ring Around the Rosie. 😂

Elephant Mountain!

We climbed Elephant Mountain 😵 💀 I stopped counting after 400 stairs – I have since died of stair death. 👻 I am just a ghost now. . . . But seriously! 👍🏔 It was the nicest time I’ve had in a while. We didn’t get there until after 6 and it was already way dark. I was worried it would be full of drunks / creeps / make-out sessions. It wasn’t! We kept running into the nicest people! Everyone was encouraging each other. Ran into a group of about 15 #Indonesia students there for someone’s birthday. Then a group of #Korean boys. Then some westerners. A #Chinese girl who was posing for a billion pictures with the help of a #Philippine boy who was great about trying different shots and so patient. Then a sweet #Philippine boy walked us down – he’s just finished a contract in Japan. Everyone was just telling each other ‘you can do it! You’re almost there!’ This is what ‘coming together’ and ‘community’ should look like. ❤️❤️ Made me fall in love with humanity again.

Christmas Balloons!

#Christmas is here with trees and Christmas Light #balloons !!!!

They make the ballooons by taping lights on the outside. They are so beautiful and awesome!!

#Sushi Art!

Cute #sushi Art at #Chicago & State station in Chi-town.  Looks delish huh?!?

Furro the Burro

Say hi to Furro the #Burro! 😊 This cute donkey was selling melons on the #street. (In a university park, in a city with millions of people – a #random donkey. I love #lifeinChina ❤)

And who could say no to that adorable guy? So sweet!!

The City that Survives

America is my country, but #Seoul is my hometown.  There is something so soothing to me about this city, with the topsy-turvy combination of new & sleek contrasted with old & meandering.  The moment I see my river begin to rise in the bus windows, my soul relaxes and I know it’s all ok.  To stand, looking out over a city as old as time.  Knowing that for centuries, one nation after another (often repeatedly) tried to stamp out its #culture and #Heritage only for Seoul to stay standing.  It’s a Beautiful feeling – Here for 14 days!

Gateway to Your Heritage

I ❤ #China!  Driving down the street, ran across this gorgeous old #gate.  So beautiful!
