Korea Travel Vlog Part 1

by User Not Found | Jun 21, 2015
On June 17th, 2015 I left for my study abroad trip to Seoul, South Korea. I will be staying in the Yonsei University dormitories for seven weeks, so I decided to record my adventures into a vlog.

These past few days have been life changing. Besides having to deal with the immense amounts of culture shock, I also was overwhelmed by the lack of garbage cans Seoul has. It is very difficult to find a garbage can in the streets but once you find one it always has a recycling bin attached so as to throw out any plastic and/or metal wastes. I have only seen one garbage can without it.

Besides that I also found what it seems like solar energy power boxes outside buildings. I have yet to find out what they do but my guess is that it helps power the corresponding building. 

There is also some footage of the city itself!
