Day 7 -- Final day of the conference and a Korean banquet

Collapse )

The only slight worry now is that a typhoon is forecast for tomorrow. We are supposed to be going on a trip to a Buddhist monastery on the coast and then to the aquarium and I hope the trip goes ahead as planned. The other trip has been cancelled because of bad weather. Anyway, the day looks as though it will be interesting, if only in the Chinese curse sense. :)

Day 9 -- Back to Seoul on the KTX and a walk to the N Seoul Tower

We checked out of the Commodore Hotel -- or Komodo if you prefer. :) From there it was a short trundle with the suitcases, downhill all the way apart from the climb over the footbridge to cross the main road, to Busan Station. We bought a muffin and coffee/tea for breakfast from the station and then went to find the train. It was on time and we had reserved seats, so again everything went very smoothly. Collapse )
