Ever since I arrived in Korea I wanted to get a scooter. Just to get around for shopping and to get back and forth to school. I think all schools in Korea are build up on a steep hill. I don't know if this is to "build character" in students - to get them mentally tough before they even get to class, or if it's something else. Judging by the "No Pain, No Gain" sign leading into the English classroom at my school, it makes me wonder if I'm right about building character.
