I sometimes try to connect the photos in a post in some way. Sometimes it’s a stretch. These two photos are from a walk downtown earlier in the month.

Mom’s Touch menu and delivery scooter, downtown Gangneung.

When Mom’s Touch first opened up, I’m sure I read that they were somehow affiliated with Popeye’s Chicken. They had Cajun fries, fried chicken, and chicken sandwiches. Maybe I dreamed that? I didn’t see any mention of it on their website when I checked yesterday. Maybe someone said “Mom’s Touch is the Popeye’s of Korea.” It’s a common phrase here. “Ahn Cheolsu is the Bill Gates of Korea”, “Mureung Valley is the Grand Canyon of Korea” (it’s lovely, but they are completely different), “Lee Jeonghyeon is the Lady Gaga of Korea”, and so on. Another delivery scooter, by the way. You’re welcome.

CU convenience store patio, downtown Gangneung.

This is a non-smoking street and there are no-smoking signs up outside the convenience store, but as sure as there’s shit in a cat, some arsehole will show up to have a fag just as soon as you sit down to enjoy a tin of coffee or something. However, when there are no smokers about, the patio of the convenience store is a decent place to take a rest while out making photos.

    1. Thanks, Mona. I miss my wit and humour as well. Haven’t heard from it in years . . . . . 🙂
      The cat idiom is a favourite of my father’s. I don’t know if he made it up himself or if it’s a Newfoundland saying. I like it because it’s very emphatic.
      Mmm, fried chicken . . . .
