    Wonderful!

    "ABBY: YOU ARE YOUR BODY."

    Heh. Classic. I can't believe how grown up she and Evan now seem.

    "Some of us napped."

    There's an oblique statement.

    "ABBY: YOU ARE YOUR BODY.
    EVAN. No. No I am not."

    You know, there's actually a deep philosophical question buried in that exchange…

    Ken, It's a bit deja vu reading your blog. My husband and I just took our kids (ages 12, 8, and 4) to Seoul March 6-15. (Although we brought home baby #4 in the process…) We also stayed at the Somerset and already the kids are comparing and contrasting our strolls down Insa-Dong. We look forward to following the rest of your journey!

    Your family sounds a great deal like mine, back in 1975, save that I was in my teens and the country in question was England. I hope your have as much fun, and that your kids come away with as much as I did.

    When you get back – if you haven't already – check out P.J. O'Rourke's dateline Korea piece in his book HOLIDAYS IN HELL. I'd be interested in what you think of it.
