Spicy Sound

We went to one more trade show today, and I captured a few interesting sights with my camera. First, the most amazing one was the Kimchi Pot Speaker system. Truly a novel use for a Kimchi Pot.

I've found the perfect next car. In fact, it would be perfect here in Seoul. You can avoid a lot of traffic jams if you can skim across the Han River or some of the streams. I met one of the designers of this car. He said this year they are marketing them for rescue and fire fighters, and next year they will begin marketing for recreational use. I gotta get one.

I ran into a few of SY's friends at the trade show:

Unrelated to the trade show, but I happened to remember the photos today, are the statues. Apparently there is a law in Seoul that all new buildings have an area set aside for artwork, which is typically a statue of some kind. Here you see two such statues, one for our apartment and the other at CH's home:

Finally, you can get an idea of how important the cell phone is to the average Korean when you see special cell phone antennas placed in the BASEMENT parking garage!
