Ajuma - or the walk down the memory lane (1)
I am cleaning my archives in the attempt to maybe finish my back-up CDs any time soon.
I still have to do all 2005, but I am working on the ones from Korea from this year first.

It's kind of hard in a way. So many memories. I have seen these places and p…

Dogs Life - or the walk down the memory lane (2)
A dogs Life in Korea is still one of the worst you can imagine.
They spend it either as a toy, with died hair, at a short leash at the front gate of the houses, in cages to soon be food or as stray dogs because they are no longer cute, left behind by for…

The end of a cock - or the walk down the memory lane (3)
Like here in Hungary, butchering in private is still a normal thing in the rural areas.
Here I could watch one of my neighbours killing a cock

Nice fence and yard - or the walk down the memory lane (7)
In my experience in the rural little town we lived in, the people either were very clean or they didn't bother to pick up any trash.
They also used all kinds of stuff that other people threw away for trash. I saw a lot of interesting fences for example.

Traditions - or the walk down the memory lane (4)
Almost every country has some sort of Traditions.
In Korea it's the "Leave the shoes outside the house"
A good tradition in a way, because the streets are always very dusty and dirty and who once had to clean a house in Korea knows what I mean.

What always amazed me about Korea, no matter if it was Seoul or our small town, was the old and new, modern and old contrast.

A cat's Life - or the walk down the memory lane (9)
Cats don't have a much better Life than dogs in Korea.
For long years they were hunted and killed, because they are supposed to be sent from the devil. Still you see a lot of cats without a tail. And I haven't seen one Korean with a cat as a pet (again, i…

I don't know what's worse, living in those apartments or in one of these old houses with a roof that leeks and a trashy yard.
But I think, I would take the house ;)
