It finally snowed here in South Korea. The other day we woke up to a light blanket of snow on the ground. Snow in the city is interesting. It turns an otherwise grimy city into a crisp, clean looking place. It makes an otherwise noisy city into a quiet place. It slows everything down. The taxis move at a safe pace for a change. The other cars tentatively inch along the roadways and the delivery people on motorcycles slow to a crawl.
Kids love snow--even here in the city. I heard some shouts and laughter and came around a street corner to find two boys "sledding" down the hill near our house. They were using pieces of cardboard as sleds and they were sliding down the middle of the street.
There is something special about snow. No matter where you find it--in the mountains of Idaho or the streets of Daejeon, South Korea--snow equals fun.
