Warming up before the big hike
It's no wonder why Koreans love to hike with views like these. We felt a little out of place with our dull black jackets. All the real hikers wore bright yellow, orange or pink jackets. And don't forget the tight trousers!
Luckily for Thomas we don't live in this house
Koreans take cycling seriously. They left their helmets on for the entire show.
The traditional Korean mask dance was dragging on a bit when suddenly...
Guess who was chosen out of the all Korean crowd? Here is Thomas receiving a box of treats for his dancing effort. The other dancer Eyal kindly offered to let us stay at his place in Seoul.
