South Korea was a mind-blowing experience and very pleasant surprise. From the beautiful architecture, modern and historical, to the lovely people and the eerie DMZ at the North Korean border - a fascinating experience. Photos simply can not describe the rich culture and friendly people who live in constant fear of the tyrannical NK dictator yet remain upbeat and positive that one day the two countries will become one, living in a free Republic.
