Grand opening in Kangnung (May 2000)
(Please read this before you copy our photos or text.)

Kangnung (Gangneung) is a growing city. It seems as if new businesses open up almost daily. These decorations (which look semi-offical) usually appear for the grand openings and presumably help to bring in customers.

Ah, but business success is elusive. I shot the photo above in May of 2000. I looked for "M.BIF" four years later, hoping to have "before" and "after" shots. It was nowhere to be found. Play a verse of Taps for "Millenium Bring Into Fashion."
