Pres DJ

23 August 2009

Another former South Korean president died recently.  No drama, nothing fishy.  Apparently, he was very well liked as many people had good things to say about him and tens of thousands of people showed up to pay their respects.  Including Liz and I.

Standing in line for who knows how long were hundreds of Koreans who patiently waited in the heat to place a white carnation below a large picture of Mr. Kim Dae Jung and then line up to bow in respect. Quite touching.  I like this about Koreans.
