A quick three day trip to Korea before Xmas was mainly to have a look around, but as always I have a recorder on me. The R09 goes with me everywhere. There is a great hill in the middle of Seoul that of course I decided to climb. The top has the remains of an old fortress. I think the Koreans had signal posts on the top of peaks all over the country to use in case of emergencies or invasion.
There were a group of locals in period costumes to represent the guardmen of the time and they did a presentation with some traditional music. I understand no Korean at all, but it was very interesting to watch and listen to. It was also facinating to compare the traditional music of Korea with that of its nearby neighbores China and Japan. It was quite different in style.
