Speeding towards the airport on our way to Korea:
The setting sun, at Narita airport.
Our hotel. It wasn't much, but it was cheap:
THe intersection near our hotel was crawling with these delivery scooters. The Koreans, it seems, will put a delivery apparatus on the back of any damned thing.
The back alley leading to our hotel was stuffed with print shops. In 70 ZumiPaces we counted 12 visible printshops, each with a massive 4- or 5-colour press. At 10pm 5 of them were still running.
This vendor wedges his little shop into a stairwell. The Koreans aren't big on crosswalks so if you want to cross a busy street, you go under it, and most underground crosswalks are stuffed wtih mini (and not so mini) shopping malls.
This freaky individual looked like a man in drag to me, but zumi thought it was just an ugly girl. She may not have been wrong - most girls in Korea were ... not attractive by my standards. Or any standards I'm aware of, actually. Anyway, this person was happy to make for Zumi a little heart shaped balloon.
Zumi and her balloon.
The evolution of Koreans, a statue erected in front of the War Museum.
The sun setting near a series of really great gameshops.
A street vendor near Nolan's place. Great chicken on a stick!
That building straight ahead? That's where Nolan lives.
Some bars and restaurants and shops near Nolan's place.
The cherry blossoms in Korea are lit up very nicely.
