Only in Korea

Who knew that Spiderman resided in Korea?

Tristan is always on the go now, and has the knots on his head to prove it.  Poor baby looks battered, as one knot is draining to right between his eyes, with bruises!  This was near a bus stop on the base.
Burger King is here, off post even.  The menu is a little different (no dollar menu, sniff).
Here at a restaurant they brought us our food, which we cooked ourselves in the metal pan in the middle.  There is a flame under it, and broth is in the pan.  It was pretty good, but we mistakenly ordered it without meat (the vegetarian option), so I would have enjoyed it more with some meat. 
I'm always on the lookout for good signage.

These folks are protesting the consumption of dogs.  Apparently July 19 is supposed to be one of the hottest days of the year and to celebrate, some people eat dog.
That would be a little girl, in busy Saturday afternoon traffic, sandwiched between her parents on a motorcycle.  Haven't seen this in America?  
And, here we have beer to sample at E-mart.

All I have to say, is that Korea is one wild place.  Dean likes driving here (note he doesn't like driving at all in America).  He loves to drive like a maniac and enjoy the thrill and rush that come with constant near misses.

Driving in Korea sounds like driving in Chile: nearly every driver is a terrible driver, but they are so good at what they do they never ever get in a wreck.
