English summary:Two things I learned about Korea today – Korea is hot. And Korea is hilly. Crossed three passes today and wrang my shirt out at the top of each. I mean really. Lots of sweat. Gatorade was the hero of the day. Drank four litres of the stuff. Along with about the same amount of water. Height of the highest pass was only 380m, but I felt each metre of it.

    I notice that the sun isn't shining in most of these photos. Is that because of early morning mist or pollution? In some shots the sky looks a bit like that in the photos I took on my trip to Bangladesh in 1994 – kind of greyish because of pollution.

    Interesting countryside.
