Walking to work

The academy at which I work is about a mile away from my apartment so I walk every day. A few weeks ago I realized that I was missing a ton of great shots, so I started carrying my camera on the walk. I know it sounds like common sense, but for some reason I wasn't doing it. I don't tend to take too many pictures on the way, but every once in a while I catch something I like. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure!

Close to my apartment on a rainy day.

On the way to work I pass a trampoline house. It only costs $1USD for half an hour. I wonder if they allow adults...

On the way home I noticed a lot of students getting out of an event at a local school and walking past some massive apartment buildings. Actually, these are relatively small apartments around this area of town...

So, this hasn't been so misadventure-y yet. Walking to work isn't really a misadventure all the time, is it? Well, from time to time, it is. Just last week, my co-workers and I were walking to work when a man approached us on the street. "I want to change the world," he said as way of greeting.

I've encountered enough weird in my travels, that I feel I have a good sense for when you don't want to have a conversation with someone. I knew I didn't really want to continue a conversation with this man.

John, bless his heart, dove right in, asking, "How are you going to do that?" 

I'm paraphrasing, but he essentially said we need to start World War III with North Korea. He then proceeded to follow us all the way to where we work, and even wanted to come up to the Hagwon (academy) with us, thinking he could take classes there. John politely pointed him toward a PC room (cheap place to play computer games), and thus evaded the strange man.

The strange man we met on the way to the Hagwon. He was the one who suggested the picture, but was strangely reluctant to make contact with the foreigners...

Stay tuned for more misadventures!
