Lucy in the sky with Asians

23 04 2010

This is the view that officially de-virginized my eyes of Asia.  It was roughly 4:15 in the morning and the sun was just beginning to peak over the mountains of Incheon, South Korea to reveal…. the airport. I know it is extremely exciting, but I will board my final flight to Busan in just under one hour, THEN I’ll get a real first impression.

Saying last goodbyes was, and always is for that matter, the most difficult part of the process.  It raises feelings of guilt, terror, sadness, and regret which I typically do not allow to swim in my head.  Walking through security in Salt Lake City was the first time I started to get preeeety anxious; nay, scared-shitless!  At that point it was time for a nice, strong Manhattan (or 2) to help calm my nerves.  After a long conversation with myself in my head over these drinks I remembered why I am going, and boarded the first plane.

Side note: Being the only white chick in a given airport is pretty surreal!
