Long time no see
How are you all?
Pretty good. May be in Seoul in July…
10 years ago - A gathering of expats in Seoul, ROK
9th August 2003.
The expatriate community of Seoul consisted mostly young Canadians, Americans, and Australians who were teaching English there. There were some great people, and some scoundrels. Some people fell into both of those categories, and a few fitted only one. Good friendships are often forged among expats. Tens years on, looking at these pictures it is interesting to note that I am still in touch with all but one of these people.
10 years ago - Gharial at Seoul Zoo, ROK
31st July 2003.
Just back from a quick trip to NZ for a job interview, what did I do as soon as got back to Seoul? Headed for the zoo of course. I can’t really think why but that’s what my photos show I did.
Seoul Zoo is a dismal place. The animals are poorly housed and people taunt them, shout at them, bang on their cages and feed them junk. This little gharial was in a very small pool which was full of coins. No doubt some idiots (i.e. everyone) think it’s a wishing well.
