The photo below shows a series of stone blocks that now line the side of the walking/biking path along the ascending bus route that snakes its way up Namsan. I have no idea why road crews are spending hundreds of man-hours laying this crap down, or why some stupid city official felt that adding a damn curb to the path was even necessary. All I know is that this is an enormous waste of time, effort, and taxpayer money. A two-mile-long curb that adds nothing to safety? Christ on a fucking crutch. I wonder how many tons of rock all these blocks represent. This is, as we say in the education business, make-work: effort that's purely for show, purely to occupy one's time, and not geared toward accomplishing any sort of constructive, meaningful purpose. Bullshit, basically.
And it's de-beautifying my mountain, dammit.
