I hate to say it, but loss of life and property damage aside I was a little disappointed at the typhoon. Growing up on the West Coast I was quite curious at the concept of a Pacific Ocean hurricane. All in all I’ve been through much worse wind storms back home. This being said other areas of Korea were hit much harder than Seoul, my condolences go out to the families of the seven individuals who were killed or are currently missing in other parts of the country.

In completely unrelated news on Friday I was reading the Korean herald and noticed an article about government plans to cut college tuition costs by 30% by 2014. Considering the opposite is happening in the States I was pretty impressed. Hey politicians back home? Get your priorities right…
