Running with Chopsticks

When I was growing up in NYC, I heard about doors to apartments being left unlocked in the 50s. I never believed it until now. Korea has a virtually crime free society. I've seen iPhones charging in public places with the owners gone. Street merchants cover their merch at night with just tarps; and no one takes anything. In six weeks I've only seen one person raise their voice in anger; the police were called. The food is probably the healthiest and most delicious of anywhere I've been. I am rarely disappointed when trying something new. Most food is prepared in front of me so I can examine the freshness of the ingredients before cooking. Hygiene standards are extremely high. Everything is super clean. 90% of the cars on the road are Korean made as well as most of the products in stores. The government imposes high tariffs to keep imports out. The country was destroyed during the Korean war, so much of the architecture is new and futuristic  They have the fastest internet I've ever experienced and a community effort to cover the country with WIFI. They have the largest subway system in the world and the airport is a small city. If you haven't figured it out, I like Korea.
