January 3, 2012:
On the night of 2nd we flew into Seoul for a little New Year holiday.
Early in the next morning we took a trip to Lotte World, our first family trip to an amusement park.
It has the fastest merry-go-round I have ever seen. Everyone is required to wear a seat belt on it!
In the night, I was killing time in a cafe while Yoshimi was shopping. I struck up a conversation with older gentleman sitting next to me, and over some beers we started to talk about music. It turns out that he was one of the singers of Tokyo Romantica who had some million selling hits in Japan in the 60s.
One of my goals of 2012 is talking to more strangers, and this was a nice start to it!
