This past Sunday Shauna and I, spent our afternoon at the ballpark in Jamsil watching fifth place LG Twins take on second place Lotte Giants. With a month before playoffs, every game counts for LG. To date this is our third baseball game. The one common denominator is the Lotte Giants. It seems every game we are destined to watch the Giants are playing. Although this is partially my own fault or was it? I was pretty certain the game was suppose to be Twins versus Eagles. But wherever I obtained my information was tainted. Either way. Today's game we ended up sitting in right field. Tickets 8,000 won. Can't complain. Before we located our seats, we spent a bit of time outside the stadium killing the hour before the game started. We wandered into the ... read more

The Air Canada Flight YOW is its typical sterile self. Don't get me wrong, it is a great airport, but something lacking... Security takes the typical 5 minutes in line with zero resistance at the scanners. I'm pretty much an expert at not setting off metal detectors. I expected more from the x-ray guys, because I've got a laptop, external hard drive, cables for the phone, camera, chargers, granola bars, Air Canada issued hand sanitizing spray (as a tiny amount *25ml* of undeclared liquid), etc. etc. but they didn't even look in the bag. The flight was pretty good, a bit bumpy over Northern Ontario, and there was an unfortunate pregnant lady two rows up who looked panicked the entire time and spent a good long time in the bathroom. I'm pretty sure she was deathly ... read more
