We have completed the restaurant bucket list, except for PF Changs (scheduled for tomorrow). All of the places lived up to our expectations except for Aiello's (disappointing pizza).
We are in the middle of packing up the house and recycling, free-cycling, and giving-away as much stuff as possible. It has been quite an exercise, but has gone well. It's amazing how much stuff we have..... I was reading a book about Mongolians and since many are still nomadic, they are able to construct or deconstruct their entire house (ger) in less than 2 hours! We are looking forward to living more simply.
Travel Plans: we received the official itinerary for our initial travel arrangements and here they are:
Philadelphia to San Francisco
San Francisco to Seoul
Seoul to Ulanbaatar
this amounts to approximately 22 hours of air travel and 6,700 miles
