Korean dog sees her first American

Felt like something sweet while walking home. Decided on ice cream, but cafe near my place in Mangwon wouldn't accept my card because their machine is down. Not a problem.

I go to ATM next door. While getting money out, a younger Korean man approaches and says to me in broken English, "You no cash? I pay for you". I politely decline.

Back to cafe. Before walking in, I exchange words with the Korean man and his fiance. And their dog, Happy.

"Your the first American she's ever seen. She likes you!" 


40 minutes of conversation pass by and I'm invited to have homemade Korean food at their house the following night.

Living a good life means more moments like these offline and less exposure to bullshit online.
