Joo and I worked hard to get everything ready for her family's visit... but there are some things you just can't prepare for. When we arrived in New York, I easily navigated the streets and took us to where our guided tour with Korean headsets was to begin. The lady there first informed me that there actually wasn't any Korean option, but that we could kindly have French, German, or Dutch. Furthermore, when she checked deeper, it turned out the tour I had reserved the day before no longer existed and that I couldn't even use them at all (of course, no refund). So I decided to deal with it later and just bought another round of tickets at a different tour. The day itself went pretty smoothly, with highlights being Central Park and a store that offered free massages. The night bus double decker tour through the downtown MIGHT have been nice, except for the fact that it was cold, rainy, three hours long, they had jet lag, and we were all underdressed.
