Seoul: Cultural Currents

There is a fine line between order and chaos. At the Korean Folk Village, an hour’s drive south of downtown Seoul, 30 pre-school children were corralled by a long string that each gripped in his hands, keeping them in an orderly double line until it snagged on a wooden see-saw and snapped. Suddenly freed, the children toddled off in every direction, pursued by their harried teachers.

Manitoba: Polar Pursuit

No roads lead to Churchill. Freight trains haul loads of grain to boats at the Hudson Bay dock on the edge of town, Canada’s only Arctic seaport. But the road ends at Thompson, 250 miles away, and travelers can arrive only by train or plane. Unsteady tracks restrict locomotive speed to 15–20 mph, so the VIA Rail trip from Winnipeg, 1,000 miles south, takes about 46 hours, and only local puddle jumpers Calm Air and Kivillaq fly in from the likes of Winnipeg, Calgary and Thompson. Yet for six weeks every year, tourists flock to this remote outpost in northern Manitoba because it is one of the only places on Earth to watch polar bears in the wild.
