At a leisurely pace, one can walk around Yesan in half an hour. Quite a change from Seoul - look how short the buildings are! The people were kind and interested in us. There is a university campus close to the town that hosts a foreign teacher called Pamela. We know this because as we wandered about looking for a restaurant, three people approached us to ask if we were "Pamela friend." She is quite the local celebrity, it seems.
