안녕하세요! That\’s about the only Korean I\’ve learned in my 5-day stay. Oh, and 감사합니다, and indeed I must thank you for your patience.

We met the sweetest security guard ever, and she told us to be careful before giving us a wink and helping us up and down the caged ladder. Sure didn\’t see that one coming.
