1. Busan Station, February 2015. The final stop of my two and a half week jaunt around Korea came in the southeastern coastal city of Busan. I arrived on the extraordinary bullet train, probably the smoothest, most comfortable long-distance train journey I’ve ever experienced. Happiest of all, as anyone who’s seen the zombie apocalypse movie Train to Busan will surely attest, my trip was totally free of lurching, flesh-eating monsters. This shot is of the main square outside Busan Station, where a group of locals had seemingly put on a dance performance to hail my arrival.
