Since arriving in Korea in March 2008, I've made it my point to learn about the people, the places, and the life in Korea. It goes without saying that living in a foreign country hasn't always been easy, nor has it been what I expected. Some things have been better; others worse. There are some things that Korea has taught me about the world, however - without further ado:
1. 300 km/hour KTX trains can exist next to squat toilets. One symbol of Korea's bright future has a hard time correlating with one symbol - a reminder that the world doesn't always have a lot of gray in-between those two extremes.
