odd sights in seoul

May 5, 2007

– two folks riding by on their bikes with huge parrots nested comfortably on their shoulder and handle bars, respectively

-an older gentleman, retired soldier from the looks of his all-fatigues sartorial choices, scooting along the same trail, on a tiny bicycle, with training wheels. He managed to rock both the “bad ass” and “childlike innocence” looks in one odd package.

-finally, also on the Hangang, a man walks across the river on a wire. Dang… don’t see that too often, do ya? And only a mile from home! Click on the pick to watch the video. Sadly, we didn’t have the camera two days earlier when we saw a more talented athlete accomplish the same task on a blustery day, by RUNNING across the wire… seriously… running. You know you are good at when you make other people who do something incredible look tame by comparison.
