Here & There...

February is a month of here & there-ness.  Returned from the US on Tuesday, in Germany until the 21st, then flying to Korea on the 22nd. Three continents, three countries, three weeks... sounds extreme but its been something I've been planning for and thinking about for a long time already. It was nice being back in America. I had a great time seeing people and being surrounded by the familiar.  It's also nice being back here in Germany now.  Also familiar.  Korea, however is totally new territory. 

Trying to spend the days preparing for Korea by reading Korea's Place in the Sun (a modern history of Korea which I find a bit too academic, but still rather informative), studying some Korean and watching KPop videos on Youtube.

I've now learned about four major Kpop bands:
-Girls' Generation

Here's one called Hahaha. It is different from pop here in Germany or the US, but I think I'm actually starting to take a liking to Kpop.  It reminds me a bit of a Neutrogena commercial at times, but the music is pretty catchy.  What do you think?
