|The pride of Korea in the mid-90's: The Taejon Expo. It closed, then reopened for many years as the Taejon Science Park.|
|It was jam-packed with futuristic buildings and fountains.
I loved it!... went several times.
|Ten years later, another big expo: The Ceramics Expo in Yoju.|
|This one was more traditional in its theme.|
|I'm in a traditional picnic pavillion, at Korean Folk Village, with some very up-to-date students of mine.|
|An here I'm at another traditional sight, at a traditional time: it's cherry blossom time at Mount Songnisan in central Korea.|

|Mountain climbing in Korea. Yes, this is as steep and scary as it looks. Worse, I ran out of film, and had to reload where this picture was taken! This is Taejon Mountain, central Korea.|
|It gets a little easier. I came for to see these neat bridges in person.|
|Dessert on the journey. I had a chance to rest and talk with these three lovely ladies. I loved mountain climbing in Korea!|
|A three-log bridge at Korean Folk Village. Tricky... but not as tricky as the one-log bridge!|
|A glyph-carved rock.|
