Letters from GwangJu, South Korea

My friend Kimbal Musk (owner of The Kitchen and CEO of Me.dium) is in GwangJu, South Korea with his wife Jen installing her light harp.  As usual, Kimbal is hysterical.  A typical paragraph:

“And NO ONE speaks english.  It’s like we’re aliens.  They can’t even read the tourist map.  We spent about 45 minutes in an insane, high speed taxi ride trying to explain where we wanted to go by pointing at the map the hotel gave us.  I think the map we got was a joke played on the only western tourists to hit GwangJu this year. The cab driver thought we were retarded.  We thought he was out to kill us.”
