Hi John, no doubt in my view this is the right direction! The logic and the benefits are clear. My issue is that I have never been able to apply the approach on an effective and consistent basis and slip back into “old ways” thinking. Will be interested in how you go about making it work and the techniques you use. Good luck!

Tears for Bridget Werner

My condolences John. Bridget sounded like one of those people we need more of in the world.

The more things change, the more they remain the same

I pulled it off!

Looks a lotta fun John! Couldn’t help but be reminded of the old ACDC song TNT, when Bon Scott was up front ….”women to the left of me …..women to the right”

Everybody hurts

John, really sorry to hear you are going through a difficult and painful time at the moment. One thing I would say is that the current dark times will finish and you will continue the journey and be happy again. In the meantime, if I can be a little presumptuous and offer some thoughts … kind and gentle with yourself at the moment and don’t do too much self analysis. I am pretty sure the good of your life far outweighs any negatives anyway! Yeah, go apeshit, drink Itaewon dry for a while and then latch onto your New Years resolution……..

A resolution

Well put. Reckon I will adopt that too. Let’s hope it’s a good one …..

Alone again (naturally)

Late 2012 John.

The Hamilton alley was well and truly opened up when i left. I was just reminiscing on the pathway when it was a metre+ wide and dark as hell.

No argument from me on the Korean ladies ….not a one!!

Ahh, the mention of BlessU gave me a flashback to the now long disappeared dark and narrow (sometimes a bit foreboding?) pathway between Dolce Vita region to 3Alley region. Trod (stumbled) that path a few times!

I guessed what was happening in Itaewon and sadly (at least from where i sit) the progress probably wont stop. Ironically it would seem to be driving out a lot of what Koreans came to Itaewon to experience in the first place.

Glad to hear Goldfish survives in some form although like you i was quite at home in the old version.

Best wishes for 2016 John.

John, you dont know me. I have been a long term voyeur of LTG (albeit now from Sydney) finding great interest in your life and times, (yep, thats a fact) and now find myself a first time contributor. Principally and eerily due to the fact our lives have had many parallels, similar age, arrived in Seoul similar time and I suspect the same challenges in life generally and partiularly during 2006 until now.
I just wanted to say i wish you all the very best. Keep perspective and stay strong. Have a feeling you will come out the other side.
BTW, what the hell is happening in my Itaewon!? I eventually handled the demise of Bonji some years back, Scrooge was a major shock, 3Alley ……I date back to the Gunter days and thought it would always be there. ….but Goldfish…that’s the line in the sand!
Take care

Hot and Sexy World Cup fans visit Korea

You are crazy. Korean women are amongst the most beautiful of the Asians. I’m a white guy, and my little Korean girlfriend is hot as hell with a great face and flawless skin to match.
Also the best in bed that I’ve had and that compares to Chinese, Thai, Mexican, European and American.

Dolce Vita Pub

Hey, are you a contractor or are you an actual DOD employee. I’m moving to Korea as a contractor from the D.C. area and I was just wanting to ask someone some questions. My company doesn’t know a lot because they haven’t had to deal with it yet.

If you would, drop me a line.
