Mildly Frightening Moments

  • Walking around a deserted back street of Yeosu late at night with a couple of other drunken teachers, one of whom laughingly tells me in broken English that they are going to take me someplace to kill me and sell my body.
  • Riding in a car with ν˜•μ‹'s family as he drives it up a twisting and narrow gravel road to the top of a mountain. Then white-knuckling the seat as he backs down part of the way to get out, going twenty miles per hour backwards while describing the road as "very dangerous road."
  • Wandering around Yeosu alone with a pen and paper, trying to make a working map, only to realize that it's getting on near midnight and I am completely lost.
As it turns out: the teachers were just going to another bar; we made it down the mountain okay; and I got home just by asking for directions in horrible Korean.
