US Embassy Seoul Hosts the Governator on Trade Mission in South Korea

The Governator tweeted about his Asia trip (see selection below and @Schwarzenegger) and posed with the Embassy Marine Detachment.

On September 14, 2010, US Ambassador to Seoul Kathleen Stephens hosted a reception in honor of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Governor Schwarzenegger came to Korea on a trade mission, highlighting the close ties between the Republic of Korea and his state. Pictured below: Jeju Governor Woo Keun-Min, Representative Na Kyung-Won, and Gangwon Governor Lee Kwang-Jae with with the Governator and the ambassador.

From Ambassador Stephen's blog: "Governor Schwarzenegger and I with the U.S. Marine detachment - the governor told us all to flex our biceps for the photo, but I’m not sure you can tell that I’m trying!"

Before Korea, he was over Alaska, of course:
Over Anchorage, AK. Looking everywhere but can't see Russia from here. Will keep you updated as search continues. 

He stopped in China and saw our ambassador there:

Then he visited Tokyo and saw the PM but did not seem to stop by our embassy there:

He arrived in South Korea and tweeted about the US Embassy in Seoul:

Then the Governator went to see the troops before heading back to California:
