Korea Welcomes Condi

Rice arrived in South Korea on Thursday to push Seoul to fully support sanctions against North Korea, while Chinese envoys were apparently in Pyongyang warning the reclusive country against more nuclear tests.(AP Photo/Ahn Young-joon)
In fact, there were lots 'n' lots of colorful native folks on hand to warmly welcome our princess diplomat:

Isn't that nice? They're clamouring for Condi! But I know you're dying to know if they had a nice, warm matching armchairs photo op to welcome her? Of course they did:

those usightly translators could be well hidden behind a tasteful flower arrangement.

That one from Japan would have been ideal.

Thy're probably allergic to pollen though.

Wow

I like the symmetry but the body language of the Korean guy look like he's about to "get the Chair". Perhaps it's just a bug in this bots programming.

I love those chairs! Oooh I may go pop over to Korea (ahem...South Korea...) and pick up a couple myself!

This trip is practically full to the brim of Conditastic photo-ops!
