Town and Country,

well mostly town.

Most of these pictures are from Seoul or the surrounding area.  During the war, Seoul was mostly rubble, but now 11 million people live there, and most of them own a car.  We found people's driving to be quite entertaining.  People on motorcycles and scooters would weave in and out of traffic, between lanes, and on the sidewalk.  Almost all the cars were Korean made.  We saw a Corvette, a Ford Taurus, and a BMW, but that's about it for foriegn cars.
