The women ... hey, they're the main reason for me wanting to do a second year here.

Soju and bars open all night are the other reasons.

talk golchi? Spicy Chicken on a stick for 1000 won, my favo winter treat.

Hotduk? Yummy cinnamon pancake honey thingos 500 won

Cheap ciggies.

Buying a bottle of spirits from the corner store at 4am.

Cheap taxis.

Crazy tax rates.

Pocari sweat....Really! I try to skull down a big bottle of it if I can before I go to bed when I'm wrecked, it really works. Unless of course you've gone and got yourself bent on the dreaded green bottle, then there is no cure for pain.

[1] Ciggarettes for 2 bucks a pack
[2] The police. I am actually friends with cops here instead of getting hasseled by the man.
[3] Bulgogi restaurants on the beach.
[4] Marbled beef. I know a lot of it is American import but it is grown for Asian market and hard to find in Canada where people want lean beef.
[5] Cheap insurance. I pay 90$ a year opposed to $350 a month for basic motorcycle insurance.
[6] Bars that close when you go home.
[7] Beautiful friendly people who don't steal your motorcycle helmet when you leave it on your bike all day, let alone your bike going missing.
[8] Live squid for sale.
[9] Taxi's that cost 1.50 and they tip you.
[10] My girlfriend.

1) Bowing to strangers out of respect
2) Parking wherever you want
3) Restuarants with sidedishes to your heart's content
4) Cheap cabs
5) Galbi

Damn, you're sharp! Twisted Evil

First time I'd heard that one, but hey! I didn't mind being lost in Paradise....

Better than over at the University of Spoiled Children.
