Even though the focus of my recent visit to Korea was business, I did have a chance to sample some of the local recreation. On a visit to South Korea earlier this summer I discovered that several of my counterparts seem to enjoy skiing as much as I do. We showed each other ski pictures on our phones, and compared the different places we’ve skied. Several months later I hosted a delegation from Korea for some meetings we had in Seattle. When I introduced myself to one of them he replied, “You’re Andy?! You are famous in Korea. You are a skier, yes?” Apparently word had spread.

Phnom Kulen

This photo comes from Phnom Kulen, Cambodia. Phnom Kulen is a sacred mountain about 50 kilometers outside of Siem Reap. Ryan (my travel companion) and I hired moto drivers to take us here on March 5, 2008. Compared to nearby Angkor Wat (which we toured the previous day), Phnom Kulen is largely overlooked by tourists. Only a few locals happened to be visiting that day making Ryan and I the only barangs on the whole mountain.
