Iteawon is a small village in Seoul. The side walks are lined with street vendors that work in metal boxes on wheels. At night the streets are well lite with neon signs. On Saturday's its hard to drive around because everyone is trying to get to the bars for happy hour. The side walks are lined with people, its so hard to walk.

In the States all military bases are called 'Forts', outside the US they are all called

'Camps'. In S. Korea there are many camps located through out the country.

In S. Korea the camps are divided into areas:

Area 1 is located on the border of North and South Korea called Camp Casey and CRC, the location is Uijongbu.
