Coffee shop in Seoul
Posted by: Michael | Categories: Moments

End of last year I have been to¬†Seoul (South Korea). It is definitely a different world where everyone seems to work two times more than in most other countries I have been to. “Everybody” seems to be applicable to many things there, at least at the first glance. For example everybody seems to have a smartphone. “Being part of the majority” (in contrary to “being individually different”) seemed to be a prevailing wish. One of the most obvious signs of it were the colors of the cars: black, white and grayish tones. Buying a red or yellow car is probably a freaky idea for most South Koreans.

It was freezing cold with snow and ice covering the sidewalks in the city center, so I was very happy when my friend Juha took me to a coffee shop. He proudly showed me his loyalty card, hanging in his personal envelope on a small wall reserved for handpicked regulars. His envelope looked a bit like the one of an alien compared to all the others. That’s what I call having a coffee “Gangnam style”.

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on
    the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
    from now on every time a comment is added I receive 4
    emails with the exact same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
