Daejeon, 2011 — Seoul, 1990

In many ways, Daejeon reminds me of what Seoul was for me 21 years ago, especially when I see a truck laden with yontan–the charcoal briquettes used for heating and cooking. A lot of it is used in Daejeon, in fact still used a lot by low-income families across the nation.

I mention yontan a few times in Waking Up in the Land of the Morning Calm.
