"Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear?"

The late Karen Carpenter would have immediately burst into one of her classics if she spotted this mom and her kid in front of the I-Park Mall in the Yongsan District in Seoul. 
The kid obviously was interested to play with some of the pigeons and his mom just let him. Although adults in Korea are scared of pigeons (and practically about anything that flies), kids are apparently oblivious to whatever phobia adults have taught themselves. 

So, to caption the scene, let's listen to the Carpenters..."Why do birds suddenly appear...every time you are near?"

  1. You got me with the song. This is a great photo of these two, although one can't help but wonder with you about the adult's phobia on birds. Probably think they're carriers or something. Anyway, keep sharing your rare moments as you go through your days in Korea. It is always refreshing to see how foreigners view the culture of another country.
