So last weekend we got up moderately early for a Sunday in Korea and went down to BEXCO, Busan's general purpose exhibition centre. Every year they have a motor show here, but last year I was too busy to see it.
For a $6 entry fee, you can see all the latest concept, hybrid and commercial designs. There are also a lot of pretty Korean girls, as you may soon gather from the following photos.
You can ignore them and just look at the cars if you like.
The car in this photo is blue.
And here's a new fuel cell hybrid design. I'll keep quiet for a while now.
Someone went to a lot of trouble to make this truck engine look pretty. Now if I could only find where that gumball comes out of...
One of the only male models at the show, who was very popular with the ajummas.
Here's what the buses of the future will look like. Very similar, except with different colours for the handles if you're standing.
Designs like this have been around for a while. They run on electrical batteries and you fill them up with a power plug.
The models were very friendly and happy to have their photo taken with people. I didn't get mine taken because I didn't want to spoil a perfectly good photo with my ugly mug in it.
If you gave them your cell-phone, they were happy to give you a photo of themselves. I didn't because I was too shy, and also Heather would probably bite me on the arm.
And then it was time to go. Outside they had a remote control car demonstration. These cars were more for the serious hobbyist though, zipping around the circuit at lightning speed.
There were also some Korean cos-playing students. This is a more common sight in Japan and the general idea is to dress up fancily and then play games in public. This game is kinda like 'statues', so when the girl in the white dress turns around, everyone has to freeze. If she spots you moving, then you're out. I used to play that game when I was young too, except without the fancy clothes.
That's all for this week. I hope you enjoyed the pretty photos.
