*TOKYO TO SEOUL
Do you think, maybe, they are overstaffed? Anyway, in the three or four times I've flown Asiana, I have yet to see anyone even middle aged. Also, a high percentage of them are really tall.
Johnny Walker Blue Label in my favorite bar:
My recollection is that my next hotel, the Shanghai Westin on the Bund, is even cheaper.
For dinner, I strolled to the basement of the Lotte Department store next door and bought a gigantic bulgogi sandwich at Lotteria. Sort of like a Big Mac, but larger. It was Sunday night at 8PM and the entire store was packed. The economy must be good in Korea.
Finally, remember how I mentioned that all hotels in Japan had toothbrush/paste and razor/gel? My Seoul room had a sign that explained:
Your understanding is appreciated. Due to new government regulations, we are no longer permitted to provide disposable toiletries as an amenity in our rooms.
I guess these free items are now considered to be wasteful. However, I got a call apologizing for this inconvenience, inquiring as to when I might want these amenities to be delivered to my room. Strange.
A great day in football for my schools yesterday: Hawaii beat Fresno State, LSU over Florida and Stanford edged USC, with the latter two games in the realm of miracle victories.
