Why Mount Fuji? Coming up.
After a quick one night stop in Auckland, I'm now at the airport heading off for Seoul. I noticed in the New Zealand Air lounge:
Spirulina smoothie and a croissant served as my breakfast this morning. I would have it again.
Last night I celebrated at the top of Sky Tower at The Sugar Club:
The Peking Duck above was served medium and was the best of the lot. The food, however, was a bit too sour and natural (plant leaves and flowers I would not dream of consuming). The service was fine...but the view was spectacular.
Auckland must have more rainbows than Honolulu.
After a restful 10 hour flight, the plane approached Narita, when I saw this spectacular Mount Fuji view at sunset:
My Aseana flight arrived at Incheon Airport at 9:50 PM, and I had less than an hour to clear immigration and customs, for the final bus to my hotel was to leave at 10:44PM. Turns out the process, including changing money, took all of 20 minutes, for I got to the limousine bust stop in 20 minutes, bought my ticket (most of the ticket booths were closed) and waited in, for me, extreme cold. It will get below freezing tomorrow morning. My recommendation for you to minimize stress is to arrive into Incheon by 9PM.
This is getting almost boring, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average again broke an all-time record today, now up to 17,653. West Texas crude oil dropped to $74,40/barrel, a 4-year low.
