A Visit to South Korea
Clop clop clop that was the sound heard on our back as my
daughter Becky and I received an official Korean massage.Having nothing to compare this to, it seemed
like cupped hands going up and down our spine that sounded like galloping
My youngest daughter, Sargent Judie had met Becky and me at the
airport and she knew we would be tired.The first thing she wanted us to do was relax with a nice massage.“Here is a towel, so take a shower first and
report back here.”Those were our
The Korean Tourism and the Military were cooperating to give
the military families an exciting ten day tour of Korea.Hotels were giving special rates, and there
was activities and shows available in the off time.
After we checked into the Harrison Hotel, Judie treated us
to a wonderful Korean buffet which included music and dancers.Kimchi was something Judie wanted us to
try.It is a staple made from cabbage
that has been fermented, seasoned and is a tad hot.Not being used to hot seasoned food, I wasn’t
sure if I wanted to try it, but surprising enough it was delicious.Actually it is excellent for your health.
Judie knew her way around Soule and she showed us how easy
it was to hail a taxi.You wave as if
you were waving good bye.
We noticed many people were wearing gauze masks, and I asked
her about it.She explained that most
wear them because the air is bad, others are afraid of germs.
The next day Judie returned from her Air Force base to take
us shopping at the Korean Mall.“Better
price,” is what you say even if you think the price is good.They love to bargain with you, so that is
what we did.
When our arms were full, Judie took us to the Military Base Post
Office and we shipped our purchases home using US mail service.
As we completed our visit, we attended the largest Christian
Korean church.There was an area for
foreigners to sit and select which language they would like as a
translation.Afterwards we stopped to
see the visitor’s center where an American Missionary gave us brochures about
The Missionary explained how the church has grown by utilizing home
The demarcationzone was very interesting.We were asked not to speak to the soldiers, but some looking through the
windows, smiled and waved to us.We had
to ignore them.
We said a sad farewell to Judie as we boarded the airplane
for home.Judie had a few more months
before she would be reassigned to return to California.
There is so much beauty here in this world, and each country
has its own culture and loveliness.God
has created a planet that causes me to wonder if there could be additional
splendor elsewhere.If this earth is so wonderful,
I pause to consider how magnificent and breathtaking heaven must be?
