My first experience riding on the Korean subway wasn’t exactly a disaster, but I have to admit that I experienced some confusion. Everything started off great. I studied my map and knew exactly which lines to take. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the subways and how everything was posted in English (which I don’t really understand because in the hour and a half I rode on the subway I did not see one English speaker). All of the lines are extremely easy to understand, except for one. All lines are linear except for the green line which goes in a circle. What I thought would be my next stop actually backtracked me to my last stop because apparently that’s where the circle starts over. So I became very confused very quickly. Luckily I asked a Korean through some hand gestures and pointing (all of which I have become very talented with) and he pointed me in the right direction. I felt relieved to finally get on the right line, but I was definitely a bit disoriented. Unfortunately I am on the last stop in the western part of Seoul so I have to travel far on the subway to see my friends from orientation. I safely made it to have dinner with my friends and now I am back home and ready for bed. I anticipate everyday will be an adventure until I get my bearings. Now I just have to worry about making it to school tomorrow to meet my principal!
