Worldcup Stadium 24 March 2002
Korea's main worldcup stadium at the outskirts of Seoul. Outside of it there were some rehousing developments to move the people living in poor conditions next to the stadium into other areas. Very compact stadium, seats 65000, I am sure the atmosphere here will be fantastic.... About 10 miles from the border....

Seoul, 3/2002 Keywords: Ginseng
Hey, originally we were going to go to the DMZ, but at the end of the tour, we were pushed to buy three year old Ginseng products at this Ginseng store, where they tried to prevent me from taking this photo.... I was certainly more interested in the pornographic Ginseng photos on the wall and my laughing disturbed the pushers....
