When you are in a strange place even the ordinary is exotic. Like a phone booth. But today a phone booth is anything but ordinary.

Those are images from my short stay in Seoul. I have been there in May so even though it was almost 6pm the sun was still high in the sky. Korea is much more North than my usual destinations in South East Asia which means that it doesn’t get dark at 6:30pm. There is another huge difference. The roads are wide and there is a lot of space for pedestrians too. Seoul doesn’t look and feel like an Asian city it feels like I’m in the centre of San Francisco. One of my favourite cities.

But of course there is a huge difference. I can’t read anything and I don’t speak the language.

Except the countdown for the Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchong 2018. Now they are only 144 days away unless of course the crazy baby face in the North continues to test missiles like there is no tomorrow. But maybe he will run out of bullets soon if he continues to drop them into the Pacific. Who knows. It’s amazing how the people here deal with the situation.

I live in Austria so North Korea is very, very far away. Things look a lot different
