Korea Life Blog - Eyesore (1)

No matter which city you live in the world, you have the good, the bad, and the plain ugly. Korea, of course, is no exception.

An example of a real eyesore sent in by one of my field reporters. It's not uncommon to see sites such as these. There's not a lot of space to work when taking down a building and clean-up is sometimes left unfinished until the next building goes up. Not a lot to look at outside those windows. This kind of view on a daily basis would make me a little depressed. And when the new building goes up, the neighbors will be subjected to construction noises all day and night for the next few months. Looking again at this picture, I can't help but think how dangerous it is to have so many gas tanks clustered about like that. They are sitting right next to central air-conditioning units and an assortment of other electrical wires. Perhaps a few "no smoking" and "danger" signs would be useful here. Yikes!
