We are at Incheon International Airport in Seoul after a safe flight from Phnom Penh. The Koreans are so … I’m not sure how to say what they are. When they do something, they are so determined to do it really well. I’ve always been impressed with Korean Airlines. For example, I think most of us getting on the flight leaving Phnom Penh came from the same time zone where it was midnight. They could have let us sleep the whole six hours in the air, but no. They wanted to give us a meal so breakfast came, at 3 am. And I ate because I’m in obedient mode (having just been on a mission trip). And somewhere in the six hours they passed snacks and drinks twice.
Ok, and as I mentioned we are now having a short layover at Incheon in the Prestige KAL lounge, thanks to the Hunsader’s many miles on this airline.
I am grateful for warm water to wash my face for the first time in ten days. And that’s not all that’s warm.
A tired person could easily fall asleep on the heated toilet seat with separate flushes for adults, seniors and – I forget all that the controls had options for, but it was so extensive that they had to put a separate label on so people could actually flush the thing. Awesome.
And now I’m off to the food bar for a cup of coffee before we head out for the long flight. Still thinking about all the people who came to the airport to see us off, the 45 minutes of hugging and gift giving, the hands pressed against the windows and the heart hand signals pointed in our direction. What precious people they are. I’m just sayin’, it’s impossible not to love them.
