Uncertainty can be happiness

Part 3: People, charity, and a motorcycle

Posted by quirksalight on March 24, 2008

It’s interesting on how you meet people. For me, I usually just talk to people. Literally. For example, after Wietske, Lindsay and I were in a dire need of coffee, sugar, and a place to sit for a bit after our shopping expedition, we ended up at a 2nd floor coffee shop across from Dongdae-mun, which is the gate. There, while, relaxing, we overhead a foreigner jokingly hitting on a pair of Korean girls in English and of course, failing miserably. Not too sure if the girls were ignoring him or like a lot of Koreans, not understanding rapidly spoken American slang, but still, definitely tanking. Seeing and overhearing this, we laugh and I made a comment of the likes, “totally shot down, dude…” Which led the three of us chatting with Quentin and Ted (I think that was the 2nd guy’s name), exchanging info about social life in Seoul, things to do, and contact info. One guy was visiting, while the other was also teaching English in Korea.

So the weekend ended with this motorcycle: Jake’s new bike

And how so, you may be asking. Well… it involved roaming around Itaewon, nixing the dancing, and a charity auction.
