“Does Korea have a higher life expectancy than Thailand?” I asked Jasmine.
She obviously did not know because that isn’t one of those random facts you remember. But everywhere we went in Korea, I was amazed by the number of elderly people traveling with us. It took a bit for Jasmine to figure out what was throwing me off, but then she explained…at certain times, the elderly ride the subway system for free! And since we took the subway everywhere, we inevitably went with them.
I felt quite pleased taking the subway system because I could navigate it with little problem. There was one thing, however, that I did throw me off: Korean subways have the weirdest signs.
I don’t really know what they’re warning against except that sniffing strangers and having flames shoot out of your head top the list as generally frowned upon.
