MRED Around the World student Michael Glauser writes about the tricky travel between South Korea and China: 

Today was a day unlike any other thus far–it was our first travel day as a group. After the usual excellent breakfast at the Seoul Ramada, we headed to Incheon to board our plane at the world’s best airport, ranked No. 1 for nine years running.

On our way to the airport we got a good view of Korea’s new development strategy: if there’s no land left, just reclaim the sea. Because much of the ocean is rather shallow around Korea, and because land is at such a premium, they simply hall in dirt to expand their real estate — quite genius actually!

At the airport, some of us caught up on work back home while others dined on “dinosaur dunkin’ donuts.”
