Tom and I took another walk up the hill behind the church and along the woodland paths towards the centre of Cheonan.

As we're on the subject of pavements, railings, and speed limits, I'd like to mention how zebra crossings work here in Korea. As far as I'm aware, all zebra crossings here in Cheonan have a coundown timer/indicator next to the universal green man. These timers show you how much time you have to cross the road before the traffic lights change for the vehicles. I think this is a great idea as you'd assume that if someone wanted to cross with only three seconds left, they'd wait for the next opportunity to avoid being run over. However, I can also see how some would take the risk with only a few seconds to spare.

We still had no running hot water in our apartment and the kettle takes some time to heat up so Tom found an alternative method to heating our water that seemed to be fairly effective. I stuck with the kettle.
