Moving forward Monday to Pusan, Korea! Mike our host bought me bullet train/ferry tickets combination. Get in around 8pm & nowhere to stay??
about 3 hours ago via Seesmic for Android

Even though he doesn't know it, Jeff is now following the path of Amazing Race Asia 2.  IIRC, the Busan leg was a lame one because one of the detour tasks was picking up a coin in an octopus tank and the roadblock was an extremely watered down version of Amazing Race 6's pick a key and unlock a lock.  Also, it was the leg where one of faves (Japanese siblings) were eliminated.

Also, Pusan is now named Busan.  Busan is how far the U.S. Army was pushed back at the start of the Korean War.

More Jeff in Tokyo.  I wish they had shown more of the host's home.  I'm interested in the amount of space that a family of 3 would normally live in.

Jeff  Going to Yokosuka.  Interesting on the pronuncation of Yokosuka, only three syllables instead of four.

What a great episode.  Jeff and the gang climbing Mt. Fuji.  He even got a phone call on the climb up.  I hope at the end of the trip, Jeff gets a series of national AT&T television commercials.  They could show him on his AT&T phone literally all over the world.

Jeff going to and in Busan, Korea.  I'm surprised that a train conductor didn't tell him to get his feet off of the seat in front of him.

Jeff in Seoul.  He probably won't, but I wish Jeff would talk to some Koreans about the U.S. armed forces in their country.  U.S. taxpayers spend a lot of money helping protect South Korea from the North.  I wonder if the average Korean thinks that our presence is still needed.

Jeff going from Cambodia to Laos.  I really enjoyed this behind the scenes type webisode.  It was a nice change of pace from the sightseeing type ones.

Jeff's struggle in Laos.  Not as gripping as Alex's difficulties in northern Chile during season 1 , but still intense nonetheless.

wow....thank you so much for putting these up! I am finally caught up, and love Jeff's interactions. He has a great gift at relating to others and making them be at ease with him. The most memorable day for me so far was the day delivering the water filtration systems in Siem Reap. I loved that TAR episode and this was even better. I hope one day to go have that day too!

SO...anybody know anyone in Laos? :hhello:

Jeff in transit from Laos to Thailand.  Big time kudos to knouase1 ? and supan.  They saved Jeff's butt.  Another good webisode.  Jeff had it too easy earlier in his trip.

He has been doing pretty well for himself...

It did bother me a little earlier when he said in Pakse "it is not what I am used to" about sleeping on the floor, but he redeemed himself with his sensitivity about asking anyone for $$ there...

I do wish they had shown Jeff thanking his host family in Laos.  I guess Zsolt, the director, wanted to play up the drama.

Here's Jeff at the Big Brother Thailand House
