Imagine my surprise seeing Mrs. Kim not just in the airport terminal, but at the very same departure lounge. Turns out she had a seat on the same Korean Air flight out to Asia. Her destination was Seoul. I would be finding a connecting flight in Incheon and continuing on to Ho Chi Minh City. We had a short, cordial chat before boarding the plane, and she agreed to take a picture of me doing a handstand. She seemed a little skeptical about the whole thing, but I managed to stick a good long handstand on the first and only try, and she took just one shot before becoming bored with it all.
