Blowin up Haengsin-dong. Holla!

I nipped out yesterday morning for some milk and water at the 7-11 downstairs. When I was coming back I noticed a 90's Corvette at the car wash across the street from me. Now, I've seen probably less than 10 American-made cars in the 2 months I've been here, and most of them have been Ford SUVs, so this was pretty exceptional. Then I saw the owner walk over and get in the car. He was an old Korean man, probably in his 70s and he was wearing an Irish flat cap, wraparound sunglasses, an olive drab military-style coat with a huge confederate flag on the back, blue jeans and multiple rings on his hands.

I got upstairs and ran out on my balcony with my camera hoping to get a shot of the Corvette and maybe if I was lucky, the guy. No dice.


  1. Sounds like you got a glimpse of the Korean Burt Reynolds. Speaking of which I took the trash out last night in a cowboy hat and plush robe, New Zealand living!

  2. you shoulda yelled 'the south shall rise again' and started wildly shooting into the air...

    oh wait, you probably don't have six-shooters strapped to your belt.
