Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

8 million ways to
die visit a country on the verge of war
But lo and behold, Sun Renzhou emerged from a Shanghai-to-Inchon plane and became the eight millionth visitor to South Korea this year. And just in time for all the fireworks: "Welcome to Korea, now go home!"
Ms Sun will receive a round-trip ticket to come back to Korea again, a stay at the Shilla Hotel, and a digital camera to record all her memories.
Frankly, among friends and relatives — non-kyopo and kyopo alike — who have either visited me in Seoul or have gone there after I began my studies in Hawaii, all have had a great time. In Hawaii or California I meet people who have visited Korea and they rave about their trips. There is a lot to do and it's easy to get to, and it can be "more of the same" or a respite from whatever they were seeing or doing in China, Japan, or Hong Kong, if those were also on their itinerary.

I'm a former U.S. Marine and I attended the NYC Veterans day parade recently. There was a significant Korean representation. I took many photo and made a youtube video of them. I'm trying to share them with the Korean vets and the Korean people at large. Maybe you can help me. I have been getting many good responses in the U.S. I think the ROK Marine Assoc will especially like the video.ReplyDelete
Wishing you a safe and free future.

I would like to point out that the best defense against a North Korean artillery attack on Seoul would be a zillion Chinese tourists.ReplyDelete
