For the ostensible purpose of securing some documents from the local government office, open only during the week, I was happily forced to extend my stay in Seoul this time through Monday evening.
Since DJ started the first grade at the beginning of the month, this was my first opportunity to see him off to school.
On the flight back, the food was pretty bad. The dish was chicken and oyster mushrooms in a gochujang-based sauce that was probably intended to taste Korean but just tasted kinda weird, as if someone who’d never actually tried the stuff tried to cook with it. Oddly, the “side” dish was penne and zucchini in tomato sauce, a totally random pairing that made me strongly suspect that they were dumping leftovers from a different service. Plus stale bread, no butter. Whatever.
The flight was about a third full. Some passengers, with an empty row in front of them, reached over the seat and pressed the recline button on the side of the armrest, then pushed to make the seat recline forward. In 38 years of air travel, I had never considered this to be a possibility.
