... stay because a) it’s bloody North Korea.
I guess from everything I’ve heard about North Korea prior to going and with the experiences I had whilst there, I’ll never really know what it’s actually like. I left with more questions than I went in with definitely. People ask me how North Korea was and I honestly don’t know how to answer. It was fun. It was normal. It was weird. It was all of these things and more. But whatever I felt I know I was ...
... to the top. My current time was pretty much exactly 3 hours. If I was to go by this sign, then I'd get to the top in just over 4 hours. I didn't want that. I knew a few people who made it up in 4 and wanted to be part of that club. I had to gain 10 minutes somehow.

Friday I had to make a trip to Costco. When Sarah and I were talking last night about our Thanksgiving together both Chris and Gabe made a fuss that it wouldn't be Thanksgiving without turkey, which became my job to find. I had ...
... Later I was recanting the story for Chris' host-researcher and he told me that was O.K. because the Japanese think of the U.S. as being so big that a 20 hour drive seems quite reasonable. Once my shopping trip was over I was waiting for the bus and there were many other people waiting with me.
