Of Men and Fear


Under the streetlight glow, I’m walking to the next place on a Saturday night. I walk past a group of men clasping each other’s shoulders in a drunken lean, languishing down the street, blocking the path with their pace. I hear them start to make some noise and it’s directed towards me.

“Heeeeey shorty why you alone? (Oooo look at her. Where she going?) HEEEEEY~”

A cold feeling washes over me. Disgust. I choose to pretend I don’t hear them. There are too many people on the street ahead so I can’t escape. One of them gets mad.

Do you ever wonder why milk tastes different in Korea?

Do you ever wonder why milk tastes different in Korea? It has to do with the pasteurization method. North America uses the HTST method (high temperature, short time), while Korea has, for the most part, used the UHT method (ultra high temperature).

HTST kills spoilage microorganisms, and consists of heating the milk to 74°C for 10-20 seconds. With correct cooling, and chilled distribution, it has a shelf life of 1-2 weeks.

UHT kills microorganisms AND spores in milk, giving it a shelf life of 6-9 months (until opened) without refrigeration or preservatives. UHT consists of heating the milk to 138° C for 2-3 seconds.

Getting your drivers license in Busan, Korea

I recently went through the stressful experience of obtaining a drivers license in Busan, without trading in my US driver’s license. If you want to trade in your driver’s license, that process is explained on another blog.

If the DMV is one of the most hated places in the US, the Nambu driving center (남부운전면허시험장) near Kyungsung University is one of the most hated places in Korea. No one spoke English and hardly anyone was kind or patient with me. I’m going to provide you with as much information as possible, in hopes that it helps someone, because it definitely would have helped me.

Dalmaji Hill

A couple weeks ago, Ric and I took a much-needed break from work and planning our triumphant return to America and spent the day hanging out at Dalmaji Hill.  We mostly just walked around, taking the train road up and kinda/sorta following the boardwalk path back down with a brief stop by Cheongsapo fishing village.  Here are some photos from our little outing.

Firstly, I know the title of this piece is crap, but I guess that is part of the point.  Perhaps there is actually a real word for this, but I don't know it, so I made one up.

The Perfect Other Job for a Photographer in Korea


As I briefly mentioned before, I teach English at a university here in Korea. This job is well suited for creatives and photographer who are working abroad and need to balance work life with their photo life. I say this because many of us are not quite pro yet and need a visa in order to work in Korea. After spending 10 years here in Korea and working up from hogwans to public school, and now at a university I feel that I can finally take advantage of my days. However, the question that I get a lot is “how did I get this job?”
