The concrete jungle of Seoul as far as the eye can see never stops with jagged mountain ridges surrounding the metropolis. What lies beneath is a massive subterranean superhighway that is incredibly organized that you don’t need to go up at ground zero in order to navigate to any point in the greater metropolitan area where 20 million people reside and work. It is believed that, at any peak hour, there are over a million very disciplined, very polite Koreans navigating the metro Seoul subway system. I made my daily commute of less than an hour from home to our office tower right down there. And while on my way, I can search the world wide web faster than the speeding subway train in the metro, with the wifi readily available. Seoul is unlike any other place, the people, the food, the information superhighway and the subterranean world is very much intertwined with each other. Welcome world to my home away from home – Seoul.

Much thanks for the likes!
