The IPO flew from Bangkok to Ulsan, South Korea. Ulsan is not your usual cultural center, but it does have the largest car manufacturing factory in the world (Hyundai), and the largest shipyard in the world (again…Hyundai).

The concert of Vivaldi, Schubert and Tchaikovsky was the main attraction of the cultural season, but it was also a special gift to the people at Hyundai. Tomorrow morning the ship will be christened.
