Aaaaaand I’m still in #Seoul

I am just flabbergasted that I can’t leave this city.  I Missed my bus….by on minute.  Not because I was late getting to the station, oh no.  I was here 15mins early actually but I needed to use the washroom.  I figured no big deal.  A quick sit down job and then on the bus.  The sit down job took longer than anticipated.  In pay because the cleaners chose NOW to closer one of the washrooms.  Ugh.  After a min or two, I decided to find another one.  Found it, was actually closer to my bus bus platform.  Cool.

I don’t understand Korea’s cleaning methods.  It seems they just wipe things down with water because everything was wet.  I also had to remove the bucket from the toilet.  Yeah, I know….wtf right?  It is a dumb left over process from their “hole-in-a-ground” style.  See, with the old you’re, you jittery washed your but and only used toilet paper to dry it off and put that paper in a bucket.  For some reason, this bucket had transitioned into the western style but not the washer, for public toilets at least.  And why they leave then on the toilets when everything else is wet (walks, floors, seat) is beyond me. 

So, here I am, with 4,000 won in my pocket, nothing in my bank account and the next bus costs nearly 10,000 more.  My wife is about to start her training and I have no idea how she might be able to transfer any money to my account.

Having a love of travel has lead me to move to South Korea in 2010. Moving to an Eastern culture from a Western culture is a wild experience and there is never a dull day!
