I Climbed 3.7 kilometers...

...And all I got was this lousy picture.

Update on the adventures. Vincent, Bob, and I went to Jeju Island for Chuseok. Chuseok is a Korean holiday giving thanks to their ancestors for a bountiful harvest. Thanksgiving? Jeju is just south of Korea. It is to Korea what Sentosa is to Singapore... of course the island is as big as Singapore. This was taken from the top of Mt. Halla. We braved rain, wind, and fog on the 3.7km hike to the top. I really wanted some pictures, but as you can see from this one, we had to bring our snorkels to swim through the fog.

More than meets the eye!

Koreans have "invented" many well known items such as the MP3 player, parfaits, and yes, even our nemesis, Optimus Prime. The Germans, French, and Americans stole these ideas from the poor unsuspecting Koreans before they could capitalize on their inventions. With ingenuity like this, its puzzles me why Korea isn't leading the free world as we speak. Next week, I'll be posting up pictures of the newly redesigned for 2006 Hyundai Accord and Kia Contour.

Chinese vs. Saudi Barbecue



This is on the balcony of my hotel in Da Peng, China. Couldn't really find a barbecue grill, but this hot plate sure could cook up a mean plate of pork 'n beans.

This is from Haql, in Saudi Arabia. We had a grill, but no charcoal. If it weren't for the sand on the steak, it wasn't half bad.

You sunk my battle ship!



Old school Korean Battleship... circa 1985. Just kidding. It doesn't even have cannons, only ports for archer's to lean out. This was another find on the island off of Yeosu.

NO DIVING!


This water's shallow. This is the island off of Yeosu. I was driving around randomly and happened to come by this. All of the white Buoys in the background are for fishing. The Fisheries Exhibition is just down the road from here.
