The Road is Working for a Living

TheRoadisWorkGIMHAE, SOUTH KOREA - I just realized it's been a full week since I last posted. Time flies when nothing exciting happens. The difficulty of course is that I'm completely stalled here while I wait for a new passport. I'm simply not doing exciting things.

The good news, for my bank account, is that I'm no longer wasting both time and money. With the help of my brother, I've managed to secure 12 hours/week teaching private English lessons. The pay is shockingly high for the amount of work required but I won't complain. This 'work' now means that I can live comfortably without digging into my dwindling (read: non-existent) travel budget. If I'm stuck here long enough I may actually save money!

Aside from the fact that my forward progress on this journey has hit a wall, I have little reason to complain. I'm happy to be sleeping in the same bed for more than 3-days at a time; even if it is an air mattress on the floor of my brothers studio apartment. I'm happy to have a stable, unchanging group of friends (by association of my brother) and I'm happy to be living a 'normal' life, mixing work with play, although the emphasis is still on play.

From Torontoist.com's This Week in Crime:

FEBRUARY 22: A 25-year-old federal offender is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for breach of parole. The man is serving a sentence for counterfeiting and is known to be in the company of a certain female exotic dancer who has blonde hair (there's a shock). The guy is known to frequent the GTA, Hamilton and Niagara Falls and goes by the names Ryan Kore, Ryan Henders, Ryan Henderson, Ryan Brown and Michael Kolis.

Hey i was reading a toronto paper while at the laundry mat. Thought it was interesting cause i learned about the killing feilds just cause we were there. apparently the prime minister of cambodia wants them preserved so they can do a genecide trial. *shrug* thought it was interesting and some info to share...

It's about 30 years too late. Most of the Khmer Rouge leadership has died of natural causes including Pol Pot, it's leader. I suppose late would be better than never though.

Cambodia is a place that's impact on me seems to be growing the more time I have to digest what I saw.

I can't articulate it. All I know is that I keep dwelling on how defeated the people of Cambodia are. Not just the Genocide, but the carpet bombing from the (American War in Vietnam) and their own civil war before hand.

Things are still very bad. It's an international hub for the trafficking of people (sometimes as young as 5 or 6) into the s*x trade.

In every case the numbers are staggering. The blow my mind. I've been to more than a few 3rd world countries and I don't want to dismiss their own poverty. It's just that the Cambodians are, by a long shot, the most defeated people I've ever seen.

Yet they keep on smiling....

I did volunteer work in Peru in Oct and how they lived and children work still haunts me. It doesnt sound as bad as cambodia but i can understand what you mean. singer Jann Arden said once (about volunteering in africa) that these people are poor, they're not unhappy. Its amazing how seeing that in other cultures makes you take things a little easier when you get back home. Brings life back to the simple things... Hope your making the best of your stay in Korea! Find something interesting somewhere to share! take care...bye for now
