the walking I do in Seoul

I thought I would be well under my pedometer's 10,000-step goal while in Seoul, but I'd forgotten how much walking a person has to do just to go from place to place, even with the aid of public transportation or cabs. Simply transferring from one subway to another involves at least a kilometer or two of walking, especially if you're transferring at a huge subway station like Jongno 3-ga.

So in spite of myself, I'm getting plenty of exercise merely by being in Seoul-- enough to keep my daily average over 10,000 steps. Crazy.

You're in Seoul? That explains why I felt a shift in the city's center of gravity!

For me, the body part that gets the most exercise when I'm in Seoul is the neck -- from goggling all the Betties.
