Colan and I rode the high speed KTX down to Busan to visit Mike in Gimhae and explore Busan. Much of the country seems to look the same due to identical apartment buildings, but the the smaller cities definitely had a different feel than Seoul. I can see the appeal. More trees, wider streets, and a bit less westernized. Highlights – Climbing Imhosan, crazy monks wanting photos at Heungbuam temple, hiking in Geumjeongsan, and sampling stews with Mike.
