Korean Traffic Dummy

19 Feb

The bus stalled near some construction. There was a lot of construction in Korea going on. As the bus slowed, I saw this dummy. I thought it was a real person, but it was wet out and dark and the thing wasn’t moving. As we passed it I laughed at it.

I showed this picture to my Korean friend later and she said, “What is that?” and then blinked and didn’t know they did that, even though she’s lived in Seoul for most of her life.

At this point, a lot of the tension built inside of me dropped and realization was almost coming over me. One of those cliché moments of the dream come true, but you can’t believe it. I realized why it was called a cliché.

It did occur to me, that the dummy had Caucasian features…
