Today the world is as globalized as it could be - - yet we struggle to find meaning in our daily existence.

Reserva Sunday

Saturday was not a good day.

Long story short, the pvc pipe connecting my toilet to the cesspool had been frozen since last Thursday. That meant whatever went tried to go down, hit the ice wall and came right back up. So, yesterday after work, the plumber, the villa owner, and I spent 6 and a half hours dealing with this abominable ice monster. Mr. Freeze would have been proud. mr freeze1Regardless, there was no way we were going to let Bruce Wayne, let alone pretty boy George, down. After an hour of using the toilet snake (haha, google it, didn't think I'd get so many literal images), we realized that that wasn't going to cut it. Eventually, we had to bring out the BFG 9000 (google that one too), and after 5 and a half hours, we managed to melt the _________ out!

Anyways, I guess everybody's gotta deal with some sh*t now and then..

So, I figure I'd get out of the neighborhood, get some air, and snap some moments to relieve all that stress. The day started out with a slight overcast, and a tall-boy of Starbuck's drip coffee, before getting scuttled along in the subways. Hopping out of Dongdaemun Station I was eager to drop off my B/W 400 Tmax film, but upon reaching Chungmuro I was in for another setback! All but 2 stores were open, and none of them processed any film! Hah, like that was going to stop me. Well, I couldn't justify going back home empty-handed, so I went on a mission today to get at least one color roll shot & developed.

Mission Complete

Roll: Ektar 100
