Dreaming of Korea

So we have JiMin, who is a wonderful taste of Korea right in our home. We have conversations regarding Korean customs and her family and the stresses of academic life. We explain things on a daily basis of “The American Way,” and I’m realizing something disconcerting: I want to go to Korea. It’s been 10 years. It’s a real challenge now what with the hubby, jobs, and children. But I really want to go as a family and for a period of time, like 6 months. I’m writing a novel and although it’s wonderful to have JiMin here to ask questions as I conduct research, I need to be there, to smell things, to hear the noises and the language, to sit in on high school classes and drink it all in. How can this happen?
