    I took the opportunity to have a look around the subway stations on the weekend.

    A market place was open at Seoul Plaza for those shopping for Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving Day). They are selling a variety of local specialties. The market will remain open until tomorrow (September 8).

    I bought some mackerel at the market. Fishmongers say that their business is quite slow in the wake of the accident at the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. Are there things we can do when others are facing difficulties and hardships?
