I suppose this post is long overdue just like all the others I write these days. We’ve been in Korea for 5 weeks and I really haven’t said much about it. I given bits and pieces of what we’ve been up to, but let me give you a better explanation.
Just hang a right on Go Sog Do Ro Jin Ib Ro…
The road signs are very American looking aside from the language difference. Even the signs for their highways look like the interstate signs.
Driving in Korea is nothing compared to the organized Autobahn system in Germany. Korea is more like chaos. Pure chaos.
We definitely aren’t used to seeing sky scraper buildings either. Most of the tallest ones are apartments.
The birthing center is only 36 miles from where we live but depending on traffic (as you can see it is backed up on the other side of the highway in one of the pictures above) it can take up to 1.5 hours to get there. Which is part of the reason why I’m so thankful I have my doula for the car ride on D-day.
Other Korean adventures include a trip to explore a grocery store, IKEA, and Costco. Yes, Costco. And it is exactly like the states.
