So I finally got my wish! I experience a true typhoon/ hurricane!
Typhoon Sanben hit South Korea this last monday and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the streets outside had been flooded with water. And like any responsible logical and danger sensitive adult, I went out into it. :)
The store owner wasn't too happy to see us, but we got what we 'needed' and met a friend on the way back. At least I wasn't as crazy as this friend, his plan was get to the beach. He ended up falling half way into an uncovered manwhole, scrapped up his leg pretty bad. I think his main concern would be bacteria and filth.
I mentioned before that I brought my camera with me before. Well, apparantly a camera and a typhoon (you know flooding water and rain everywhere) isn't a good mix. After the last picture of Joel in thigh deep water, my camera decided to die.
Also work was canceled. Which was really nice, though by the time I would normally go to work the weather was back to normal and the water was gone. It is still nice to only have a four day week though.
Apart from the typhoon, this week was a good week. I went shopping with one of my Korean co-workers on Saturday in an underground mall. That was pretty awesome.
Well, everyone stay safe and don't go out into potentially dangerous storms unless you bring your camera.
