After the 14 1/2 hour, 3 meal, 3 movie, completely full flight from JFK on Asiana Airlines, we arrived in Seoul around 3:30am. John Lee, a graduate student at Carniege Mellon, and his friend, met us at the airport and checked us in to our hotel: The La Vie D’or Resort and Country Club.

After a brief rest, we had a traditional Korean lunch with Drew alumni and then went to Hypsung University where Rebecca spoke in chapel on God as Poet who speaks the Word.

We return to Hysung University tonight to do a lecture on “The Spirituality of Henri Nouwen” and show the film documentary–Journey to the Heart–which is also airing in the USA this week on PBS stations.

Too tired to say much about our first day in Korea, but the weather is fine (65 degrees), cloudy, mountain are little hazy, the streets are crowded and the people
warm and friendly.

Its time now to find the pool…
