Random Amusing Sights

Here, for the enjoyment of my faithful readers, is a collection of some amusing things I have photographed here in Korea. I hope they make you smile!

Seoul airport. You can just imagine how hard it was to figure out where to go to get my bags!
A modern art exhibit, also in Seoul airport. I'll bet my dad would love to have this bed, which is made out of television sets!
The buttons on my Korean washer. Is it any wonder I was nervous the first time I did laundry here?
Just a nice, wholesome children's book (my Aunt Diane would LOVE this one)!
This is a trashcan that I saw in a restroom. I have no idea what the author intended the little story to mean!
This is actually a bar downtown (no, Grandma, I didn't go in).
Awesome sign at the Corner Cafe, the cutest coffee shop in Gyeongju.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
