Nomadic Gatherings: Chapter Two: Kimchi and Gold Medals - Waiting With a Wad of Won.

Travel Writers - Writing About Travel

A queue of locals waited at the other side of customs with a wad of Won to buy any surplus duty-free.

Phil and his South Korean wife sold their four bottles at a profit that paid for their passage, evening meal and a few drinks. He apologised about not telling us about the quick cash-turnover possibilities.

"If I had told you and no-one turned up I would have looked a bit silly," he said.

He took us across the sprawling industrial city of Pusan to the express bus-terminal. There was half an hour before the bus left for Kyongju.

"I'm starving. I could sure do with some food." Dave was travelling to Kyongju too, and needed an American breakfast.

"Do you know what you're going to eat?" Phil smiled. He was a South Korean old hand and warned us of the 'Kimchi' (pickled cabbage with everything).

Dave knew alright. "I'll have a hamburger and fries. I guess they can't screw that up!" he said.

Phil laughed and pointed to the 'American Burger' bar, "there she is."

He gave me his card and left.
