Stuff: Innocent-looking, but mean ass street money dealers!

On the weekend ~ Spotted these looking old ladies, sitting with wee towels covering their laps while at Namdaemun market in Seoul.

At first I thought they were innocent old ladies... possibly asking for alms. But NO!Just wait till you see them dish out these big-ass piles of Korean Won and USA Dollars from under those towels.


THEY ARE MONEY CHANGERS!


Apart from calculators, I bet that if you pissed any of them off enough, they'd probably pull out a machine gun from underneath those towels.

They remind me of those old italian ladies (I've seen a few dressed in black) who take the Bundoora tram after grocery shopping. Scary...

m@ri: Not that bad la. The traders are worse... they will drag you to go look at their stuff. Some get mad when you don't purchase after looking :P

beck: Those Italian ladies went there every week to ex-husband/lover's grave lah. Not so scary after all. Sweet even... :)
