Incheon has much more ppl on the metros

Since i had some time i chose the longer way - actually a big detour via Incheon-city choossing line 1 and Incheon metro then airport aixpress - instead of just the airport express going straight from Hongdae. As i approached to Incheon a older lady sitting next to me asked me something - i was like "yyymmmhmmm mmhhhmm" - pretty much like that. She reapeted the question pointing at the metro map in my hand - so i guessed she wanted to know, where i was going. I showed her in the map and she started to count stations - and told me in korean (of course!) plus showing me with the fingers how many stops i have to ride still.

I could count it by myself of course, but she obviously wanted to be helpful.

Then she kept asking me thing and talking really like we were using the same language code and were old friends, smiling and stuff. I just smiled back and showed with the face that i have no idea of what she was talking about. But she seemed to be amused so i kept smiling back. Then at some point she prepared to get off - it was her station. Then as the train already stopped and the doors were about to open the lady ran back to me and gave me something wraped in a black plastig back - i told oh, no thank you, it's not necessairy but of course she couldnt get my message, so i just accepted the gift. What i could say about that gift even without opening it was: inside was something warm and not really hard... and there was two of those mysterious things. Then the lady smiled and got of the train. I must have had pretty surprised face. I relized the gift was still warm cooked-corn. Hahah so i got a free meal as a present! Great, since i had still a lot of time to kill before the flight and the lunch on the plane. At the airport i just bought coffee and ate my corn.
