Informative.Willing to answer our many questions.Found us a lovely spot for a long Korean lunch.She also went out of her way to buy us baseball tickets before we arrived in Seoul, which we greatly appreciate.She took us back to our friends' Hotel and helped us organize our travel tomorrow.Our only regret is that we couldn't arrange more time with her.
