Don't forget about the simple things in life

Lately I've been feeling like the initial excitement of living in Korea has dried up. Today I took a nice little walk with Aaron and a bit of that long lost excitement came back. Seriously, working all day with crazy children while watching the daylight pass by the window will certainly suck the life out of you. Anyways, today we got off early so we were able to appreciate some mid day sunlight before it started to rain. Despite all the asbestos we probably inhaled, the acid rain that pelted our skin, and the crap that blew into our eyes during our pleasant peruse from Sinsel-dong to Sindang, it was actually quite interesting. It's just the simple things in Korea that turn that frown upside down ^^

Could there be a better surprise on the corner of a sidewalk? I think not.

Don't knock it until you try it, but after you try it, you probably won't want to try it again. Not quite sure what the concept is supposed to be, but the donuts have nothing to do with Mexico except for the little kid working behind the counter. They tasted like plastic, but if you get the powered stuff you can create cool things with it afterwards, like this smiley face for example.

Thirsty? Drink some gut!

"Die Kwon Jeng Che"

A little child's scribbles on the brick wall in an abandoned neighborhood. Somewhat creepy, but kind of cool.

Hmmm...I wonder who uses this ladder.

The greatest mystery. A few months ago we found this whole area totally abandoned. It's a pretty large area too. Houses, apartments, schools, shops, restaurants....all empty and gutted on the inside. Super eerie, but fun for exploration. I think Kwon Jeng Che may have had something to do with it.

Can't say I agree with this little message but it makes the whole scene ironic.

An RV doubling as a home and a coffee shop.

Here's a riddle for you. What is a $100,000 Maserati doing in the slums of Seoul?

Don't you just love seeing babies walking around on their own?
Aren't they cute.

Even a plant needs to be protected from the UVs.


Gotta love Korea.
Also...compliments of Shane Scott
