On numerous billboards around Seoul the claim is made that it is "the soul of Asia". This morning, Yun-kyung and his wife Yong-Kyeung took me to the Korean martyr's memorial, commemorating the some 10,000 Korean Catholics who were executed in four persecutions in 1801, 1839, 1846 and 1866. What's remarkable is that the faith took root before French missionary priests arrived in 1836! Kim Taegon, the first Korean priest, was ordained at age 25 and martyred the next year, 1846, near the site of the memorial I visited. Yun-kyung took this picture of his wife and me standing underneath this statue of St. Andrew Kin Taegon.












While at the museum section of the memorial, a group of Korean sisters arrived and I snapped this picture while they were listening to a brief introduction given by one of their members. I didn't see one that looked older than me!






I also took a picture of this painting by a Korean artist who captured both the agony and the glory of these men and women.

Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew.
