Oh wow... what can i say. After a long and exhausting flight from Seattle to Seoul for 9 and a half hours, It's been well... long and exhausting. I'm currently in the transit lounge waiting for my connecting flight to Hong Kong.
Being a geography nut, the first thing I usually notice when flying in is the population density and farmlands in different countries. I couldn't get any pictures while descending but Korea is a very unique country. Never mind the fact that I don't understand a single thing they're saying and half the time they think I'm Korean! (Hahahaha) It's steep in tradition and flying over Seoul I can see the old gates from the Joseon dynasty (yes, they actually used to have emperors here).
As currently I don't have a transformer with me I don't have any internet connection from my laptop other than the computers that they provide here, which is very convenient. I will add more pictures as soon as I get a chance.
My flight was very productive- I had all these books I have yet to finish that I bought from Mission fest, and one that I finished on the plane was about William Carey, the first modern missionary hailing from good ol' England. When I see his life and how God used him to spread the gospel in India, it is absolutely astounding how God can use truly humble circumstances to reach the world. He is considered as "the father of modern missions". I see that between his life and my life there runs many parallels. He did not lead a perfect life but what kept him going was that God gave him a permanent desire to share God's good news wherever he went.
Now that I think about it, I really have no right to complain. The guy took 12 months to cross the ocean to India, and I only took a 9 hour flight!
