I am done traveling. I was a little sad pulling off the freeway this past weekend. The passing trees and dull hum of the road were my constant companions. Along the way, I was welcomed into my friends' houses, apartments and townhouses without any hesitation. I won't turn this into an Oscar speech, but thank you all so much. You are welcome to come to Korea anytime! Although, I doubt anyone will take me up on that. I leave tomorrow with morning with an open mind, but also with a better sense of really what to expect. It will be hard, but I can handle it. I can drive 13 hours by myself. I can cross the country without anyone else. I can handle anything. See you on the flipside.
