Year Two, Week Twenty-six – Jessica


As I was growing up, my dad developed the firm belief that it didn’t matter how large a car’s trunk was.  If he could strap something to the top of a vehicle, the “trunk space” was infinite.  This belief ensured that my parents never paid a delivery fee as couches, mattresses, and sheet rock were all tied to the top of the car.  Sometimes I wonder if my dad has a secret Korean identity since the people of our current home seem to have a similar attitude.  Scooters are ubiquitous in Seoul and it seems as though you can get anything delivered by these trunkless wonders.  Everything from Burger King to donuts to flowers to fabric to furniture can be brought to you via scooter.  It doesn’t seem to matter how large an item is, it can and will be brought to you on the back of a scooter.

  • Sherri - YES!! I’ve also seen a 6′ (2 meter) florescent light bulb being carried by a scooter driver and a large section of a tree trunk (like a stump). The drivers are CRAZY how they weave through traffic! 🙂ReplyCancel
