Pink parking spots
In Seoul, finding a parking space is like finding a treasure especially during the spring-summer-autumn seasons at most parks, amusement centers, or swimming pools. On Sunday afternoon, we went to Seoul Forest like we usually do when our son wants to ride his bike. Oh there were a lot of people today since the weather was really spring perfect. Lots of couples, couples with babies in baby jogger city select stroller, and even extended families were there. That was why we had to wait for almost an hour to get a slot.
My husband parked on a pink parking spot! Well, he was directed by the attendant to just park there. Pink parking spots have been available for women since the summer of 2009. I don’t know exactly why the city has pink parking spots because the ones at Seoul Forest are located far from the entrance of the park. It’s rather inconvenient if one is wearing high heels. But if you think about it, Korean women have mastered the art of wearing stilettos. I envy how they could even go to the mountains wearing high heels. No kidding!
