This is the view from my room at Park Hyatt Busan. I really had no expectations about Busan, but what a pleasant surprise! Reminds me a bit of Honolulu and Rio.

I never imagined going to see my grandparents graves requires Indiana Jones type of trekking.

We couldn’t locate my grandpa’s grave for quite sometime, due to the overgrown vegetation. Dad looks over the hill where grandpa is buried. Grandpa passed away nearly 40 years ago, dad is about to turn 80 next week. This will be his last trip to his hometown, and it is certainly his last few trips to China. I wonder what went on in his mind.
