Greatest Love, Seoul Style

Just had a funny, surreal moment. On the bus coming home from errands after work, I couldn't help laughing. There I am, groceries in one hand, partial Halloween costume in the other (big, blue butterfly wings), and playing on the sound system is Whitney Houston belting out "The Greatest Love of All," set to an uptempo dance beat no less. I remember when that song came out, I was in third grade. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined then that 25 years later I'd be living in Korea with that song now incorporated into my Seoul soundtrack. I'm still laughing about it.


  1. I miss riding a bus in Seoul. Doesn't Seoul have the best public transportation? By the way, you might wonder who the heck this is. Your mom is my BSF small group leader. (Funny how God arranged our meeting now, always perfect timing...) Every place you write about on your blog, I can see and smell. Thank you so much for taking me along. Although it gets me incredibly homesick, I enjoy reading your blog beyond your imagination.
