Korean make life easy

Imagine… You are a commuter, living in the suburbs, and you have many transportation means to take. That could be a nightmare. Here though, an invisible hand is opening doors for you.

First, you would take your bicycle to reach the railway station. Nobody would still your bicycle at the station, and in addition you could use for free a pump for your tires.

Then you would take your suburban train. No need to show your ticket, everyone trusts you.

Of course, when reaching the central railway station, a dense crowd would walk through the corridors, but nobody would crash you. Everyone is calm and organized. You are asked to walk on the right side, either in the metro corridors or pave walks.

You get on the platform, ten minutes to wait before the metro comes. You will not get bored though. Either you will use the free wifi, or you will borrow a newspaper, put here especially for your convenience.

You could decide to take the bus. But you don’t like the smell of cigarettes smokes in the early morning, it makes you dizzy. Don’t worry, nobody would do that. Neither in pedestrians streets by the way.

Then comes the evening, and household duties.

You start the evening by cooking a vegetable dish. You just need to take some zucchinis from the decorative garden next by.Capture d’écran 2013-10-21 à 04.30.45 

After dinner, should you still wonder how to sort out your waste, don’t worry. Public garbage cans talk, explaining where you should throw plastic,glass, paper…

On the week-end, you decide to go to the museum with your babe and grand-ma. You’d better take a car.

Don’t worry, a nice guy in an elegant suit is gonna help you to park.

Keep not worrying, museums have special rooms where you will have a pleasant break to breast-feed your little babe.Capture d’écran 2013-10-21 à 04.30.56

And granny is gonna be able to see the second floor collection of the museum, as she has her own private elevator.Capture d’écran 2013-10-21 à 04.31.06    

That was Saturday. On Sunday you leave grand-ma and the babe to someone else, and you go for a walk. Yeah, your legs are gonna feel heavy. But no worries, at the end of pedestrian trails, a basin is waiting for you. Your feet will heal and you will socialize with some other people.Capture d’écran 2013-10-21 à 04.31.47

Od course, on SUnday evening you don’t feel like cooking.
You just order a burger at Mac Donalds, delivered within ten minutes.Capture d’écran 2013-10-21 à 04.31.54

  1. The difference is not really the ideas or places but the fact that everyone follows the instructions ! 😉
    Reading you, it sounds like a really “zen” place to live, even in a big city.
