I love big cities. And I love mass transit. Most of my friends know that I prefer taking the subway rather than taking a taxi. It’s cheaper, it’s easy to navigate, and I don’t have to talk to anyone (I know that makes me sound anti-social, but… meh). In most countries I avoid taxis like the plague, and Korea has been no exception.

A while ago I lost my purse in a Busan subway station. This is a photo I took while waiting for the employees to bring my purse to the station I was at.

The employees are so efficient! I told them what station and the approximate time I lost my purse. Within minutes I was watching myself on the video screen, about ten minutes prior, sitting on a bench waiting for the subway train. When the train arrived, I watched myself get up and leave my purse on the bench. I wanted to reach into the video screen and slap my prior self. Still, no harm, no foul, because my purse was brought back to me with no missing items.
