My hotel room


in the Pothonggang Hotel. I stayed twice in that hotel, both times in room 306. On arrival the first time, the heat was on in the room. It was a comfortable 70 degrees outside and probably 80 in the room. Heat was absolutely not needed and I turned it off immediately. But I took this as a good sign, a sign that I would have food, electricity and hot water throughout the trip.

I did.

And when I came back to the Pothonggang for my second stay, the room felt comfortable and familiar, and I remember giving a sigh of contentment that made Mr. Kim happy.
