Vices we love: In a town far far away....

In a town far far away....

Finally finished moving. I live in the middle of nowhere in a town called Ansan. Actually, it is worse than the middle of nowhere- a huge, confusing, sprawl, car dependent suburb. I broke down and bought a tricycle to maneuver around on. I can now say, based on first hand experience, that commanding any form or transportation in Seoul other than your feet is not recommended. I may actually wind up selling the damned thing because Koreans, self involved bunch that they are do not look anywhere when walking and often do not heed the bell I frantically ring as a warning that, in our imperfect universe, other people exist who may in fact want to pass them.

Oh and if you ever want a Korean to stop staring at you, just ask him a question in English. That's the cue to start their annoying nervous laughter. (Distinct from the annoying brain-dead teenagers laughter.)

Jeebus- I live in diaper nation.
