On the bus, the world passes by in a screeching, grinding, halting, stopping, speeding, lurching manner. Might is Right around here and there is nothing bigger than the busses. So, the busses rule the road and they take full advantage of their size to get from stop to stop as quickly as possible.
The world outside of the bus is always busy, bright, on display, and on the move.

- sidewalk food vendors
- people walking
- people sitting
- people selling things
- people buying things
- people watching people
- people eating
- people talking
- people talking on their cell phones

- apartment buildings

- traffic lights
- delivery trucks
When I took these pictures I did not try for perfection. Some of the pictures are blurry and others are clear. A bumping, speeding bus can produce some interesting challenges for picture taking.
Here is a look at the streets of Gwangju, through the window of a bus.

These vending machines are a gathering point for many taxi drivers during their breaks or guys after eating at a restaurant.
The cup of coffee is quite small, no more than about 5 sips. The cost reflects the size – about 300 won (30 cents). The coffee is instant, not to my personal liking, and is always sweetened. All instant coffee you buy in this country is sweetened.
Restaurants do not serve dessert after meals, but they do often provide a coffee free-of-charge. A sweet shot of caffeine to top off the meal.
As Maxwell House promises, “Good to the last drop.”
