West coast ramblez

Caveman GPS
End of the road/useless infrastructure

Near Yongsu Reservoir
Lunch on the reservoir
Back to the old Kamikaze fields and the lovely rebar Zero

Japanese bunkers (again)
Chasing Sanbangsan...

On Saturday I headed round the west coast on Elsie the Cow, looking for P-snipes and PT-jacs.  Birds, rare.  No such luck, as it's a pretty durn big haystack out there, and my Jeju intel sources have dried up of late.  But it was a badass day to hit Jeju's insanely gorgeous west coast, knees in the breeze.  Nostrils happily filled with the smells of salt water, garlic, and dirt.
  At one fork, I got lost and ended up at the 'Jeju International School', I believe it was called.  A big cluster of outsized and ugly buildings in the middle of literal nowhere.  Creepy was the zombie infrastructure that ringed the place.  Random parks for kids kilometres away from anything - perhaps months old but already overgrown with weeds.  Endless grids of streets with nothing on them, most of them leading absolutely nowhere.  Ah well, I guess we gotta keep those ajosshis working, innit?
