City People

Here’s a shot I took in a Seoul metro station as a friend and I waited for a train this weekend. It’s pictures like this make that me thankful I live in a small town like Seosan. Seoul is a remarkable city, but the constant crush of people, the smog, and the utter lack of green space can really be a drag. Sure Seosan might not have all the flash and amenities of a big city, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for with charm. Living in a small town really gives you the opportunity to get to know the character of a place and its people. While at first I had many reservations that I picked the countryside over the city life, after 8 months here, I can safely say that I made the right decision. Plus, Seosan is a growing city. Case in point: it’s now home to it’s very own Dunkin Donuts! This is big event out here. There are still lines out the door and around the corner a week after its grand opening. And you know what they say: where there are donuts, there is development.

  1. if the line is out the door for Dunkin Donuts, can you imagine what it would be like for Krispy Kreme!

  2. Shweet! You guys are coming up in the world. We got your first Starbucks like franchise here a wile back, Holly’s. We already have a McDs and and DD/BR. I wonder where that puts in in this ranking obsessed country 😉

    On a busy day our downtown look a bit like Insadong on a Sunday Morning, so I would agree with the small city/town over Seoul argument. If you can get the bus to Seoul then you are close enough.
