I am blessed. The three Cho women. Minhee & our two daughters. Glad the girls have my genes. Hello Vancouver, Canada. Sabbathing in one of my favorite cities in the world with my family. Freestyle bagpipes. Santa Monica Pier. Grateful for the 24 hours in Santa Barbara to encourage local churches ... and to enjoy such views. 
Lord, are you calling me to Santa Barbara? :) I hate you, Santa Barbara! About 6 weeks ago, I had the best 10 hour layover in Seoul, Korea. 4 meals, 2 outdoor markets, 2 museums, and some beautiful tourist sites in winter, crisp weather. 
But no visit to the mokyoktang (public bathing sauna).
