As we head back to the northweast corner of South Korea today, a highlight of our journey looms – the visit to Soraksan National Park and the last of our hiking torture. But two things make me suspicious;
(a) The autumn colours seem to far more accentuated today than on previous days
(b) this is the worst day for smog so far – at least we think it’s smog
(c) we’re back in the military-heavy part of South Korea – but there’s helicopters around and all the soldier boys are standing to attention as we pass by – looks like heightened military alert.
That nuclear test by the North Koreans this morning was underground wasn’t it?
