Dave was one of the first people I met when I landed in Ulsan in 2003. Along with a small M.I.T. crew, we toured all over the place. One of the many field trips was to the Cheongdo International Bullfighting Festival. It wasn’t particularly international but it was certainly interesting.
Another field trip was to Jinhae on the south coast to see cherry blossoms in full bloom. This required an overnight stay in Busan, in what was I believe all of our first experience staying at a love motel. The walls were very thin.
