South Korea. Dalian was a trip, and the ferry, even more-so. A sleeper float which was actually quite comfortable. Xie, the leader of Wang Wen, left us with hugs and a bottle of 11 year old whiskey. Korea is when this starts to get heavy. Today, we rest from the trek. Tomorrow, we finally meet the Yamagata Tweakster, GT Arpe. Elated. Over 20 bands I have never seen in the next 16 days. It just gets more and more gnarly from here. Can't wait to dig into this country. Refreshing already.
