Sometimes living in a different country you forget that some of the very odd and different things around you are in fact…odd and different, they instead become a ‘new norm’ of sorts. So here are a few things that when I first came to Korea seemed odd but now are overlooked.
Now, this isn’t always a bad thing and I really can’t complain about ever being treated badly because we’re foreigners. And every once in awhile, we’ll get a special treat only available to us. Like at a local Italian restaurant, we get free drinks on certain nights with the purchase of a meal. How this is allowed and the restaurant doesn’t get in trouble for being discriminatory…I have no idea but you won’t hear me complain about it. Pass the wine please.
