    Gift giving

    by Travel2write Written Jun 8, 2005

    Gift giving is an important part of Korean tradition. Gifts might be given to cultivate a personal relationship, before conducting business, or to encourage aid from someone in a position above. A return gift or favor is usually expected. Koreans seldom open a gift in public. The recipient may put your gift aside without opening it in consideration of not to embarrass you at the smallness of the gift. They'll open it if you politely ask them to.

    Smoking is not cool!

    by Travel2write Written Jun 8, 2005

    If you are smoking while walking along and you approach an older person, either hide or put out your cigarette. Korean teens that smoke typically do so in stairways and basement levels of buildings, away from adult's eyes. To westerners it seems sexist, but Korean women who smoke are seen as women of loose morals (if you get my meaning).

    Busan: Animal Kitsch Pt. 2

    by Intrepidduck Updated Jun 19, 2004

    A sign for the Zoo inside The Grand Children's Park. I didn't go inside this place since I wouldn't put my money towards such levels of animal cruelties. I heards honking and screeching noises though!

    Busan: Pet Kitsch Pt. 1

    by Intrepidduck Updated Jun 19, 2004

    Doggies in boots, pink eared poodles, winter pet fashion for Busan what next. Sadly here cats are either running wild or if had as a pets their whole life is on a string, on a sidewalk with the traffic fumes and grit. Some people don't understand the true value of a pet.

    How much is that doggie in the booties?
