Akiko Hamaoka last breakfast in Seoul

Dear Shaded Viewers,

Today Akiko leaves for Tokyo. We are going to miss her in Seoul. We decided to document our last breakfast. Akiko loves to ring the buzzer.


As we were leaving breakfast we saw Mark Eley with his assistant Alexis. We all love the Japanese breakfast at the Ritz Carelton.

We are off to the museum this morning. More later,
