Last Day In Korea

I'll be back in Perth on Friday morning. Today I did a tour of the DMZ - Demilitarised Zone. It included a walk through the 3rd Tunnel of Aggression, a look at North Korea from the Dorasan Observatory and a visit to Dorasan Station - the propaganda was along the lines of "Not the last station in South Korea but the first station to the North".

This evening we spent ages looking for the hotel that Miky had booked. Places in Korea are so damn difficult to find as they don't appear to have real addresses. Without a hand phone (mobile) you are pretty much buggered.

The weather wasn't so cold today as the mercury did reach above 0 degrees for the first time in a few days I believe. It was something like minus 6 degrees the other day.

Talk more soon. With pics. I promise. Currently I have over 2000 to sort through. Not bad for three weeks work.

How many times did you bump your head on the top of the tunnel? Damn those tiny North Koreans!

Did you get your passport stamped at Dorasan station?

Yo,

Got my passport stamped at Dorasan Station. It was a real touristy thing to do. Two thousand pics is easy if you can rack up 250 in a day in Gyeongju - the place is a living museum. Only limitation was the battery life and I would have heaps more photos if I'd had a spare battery on hand. I'm downloading the pics to the computer now.

The funny thing about bumping my head in the tunnel was that I only did it on the scaffolding down there and not on the rocks themselves.
