I had a few posts in the works before my computer went down which I am still working on, but in the mean time, I realized looking through my phone that I had unknowingly amassed a small collection of cityscapes taken while riding the Seoul subway. Some I have posted before but I thought it was fun to look at them altogether. They cover the four seasons, a few different Seoul bridges, and train windows of varying cleanliness.
In some ways it's unsettling to see such "a testament to time's relentless melt", the last ten months as I've ridden past them, but I feel optimistic knowing that despite all the time that has passed, the feeling of wonder and excitement at passing over this bridge has yet to subside. My wonder isn't reserved just for weekend trips and fancy tourist attractions. One of the best parts of living abroad is that even the most routine things still can still amaze you. And I know it's these routine things that I will miss the most when I leave.
I've also have a similar collection of photos of the river located next to my school.
