Street Market Therapy

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 presetI love street markets. Not only do they have a great variety of fresh produce and yummy street food, it is always a great place for people watching. In Korea, you can always find a local street market nestled between the residential areas. Korean street markets might be a bit overwhelming at first – people shoving, ajuhmmas yelling (not at you, of course), usually highly congested – but I think it’s a great way to get away from the city life and experience a different aspect of the Korean culture.

One day, I decided to take a stroll down the neighborhood and that was how I ended up at the street market nearby. I had my camera with me so I decided to take this opportunity to snap some pictures and get mind off of things.

I loved walking down the aisles. It sure felt therapeutic for time being. I loved watching the dynamics of people – the shoppers, the shop owners, children, small dogs.

You don’t need to spend a ton of money on retail therapy (guilty) or eating junk food (guilty) to feel better.

    This brought back memories off time in PyongTaek and Itaewan. Thank you!!

    I usually put on some music and relax. Or put on a podcast and just sit and close my eyes. That usually helps get me back into a mode to be creative again.
