"Vietnam. They were only $3."
"Yes, and real silk, too."
William and I are walking home from work later. All of a sudden, I'm not in my right shoe anymore.
They're broken. I was in shock. Last time shoes broke on me in Korea, I was wearing socks, so it wasn't a big deal. After suggesting I tie them up with string we found on the road, William tolerated my walking home with only one foot shod.
I would not recommend walking barefoot to anyone in Korea. Ever.
