Let's Go PyeongChang 2018!

Some of you might be surprised to hear I was among the 8,500 torchbearers for the PyeongChang Olympic Torch Relay.

1.



2. They gave me the course where I would be running 14 days in advance. It was on a small mountain peak in central Seoul, along the 600-year-old city wall.



3. Totally coincidentally, this is the exact same spot where I spend most New Year's Eves, watching the city's fireworks and setting off our own. On Dec. 31, they told me I would be running here, the exact same spot I was already planning to go to that night. Seen here.




4. So anyway, yeah, they let me keep the outfit, and I paid a large amount to keep the torch. Believe it or not, it took over two weeks before I went out and started doing crazy things with it.




5. When I found a new abandoned neighbourhood, I showed up in costume lugging around the torch.




6. Remember when the Olympic torch relay passed over broken glass?




7. If you haven't figured it out, all the flames are added digitally.




8. From across an alley, we saw something that looked bizarre through a window, either a cosmological horror or fire damage.




9. As soon as we walked in, I immediately thought of this thread.




10. Here is what we saw. A very Lovecraftian-looking mirror. Did a druid live here?




11. Closer look.




12. Very weird coincidence I found a poster for Korea's previous Olympics.




13. A kids' drawing showing the two Koreas shaking hands.




14. Anyway, back to that torch relay.




15. From one roof, we could see the beginning of demolition in this area.




16.



17. After we went out for barbecue and I attempted to light the torch.


18. And I don't even remember taking this picture.


Anyway, the Olympics start in three days now. Don't be surprised if you see more abandoned torch relay pictures...

You have a great sense of creativity! Love the shots.

I think the next UER meet up should be at your house ;)

People are welcome welcome, but I don't have a house so much as a rooftop apartment. Picture 4 was taken on its roof.

If you liked those facial expressions, get a load of these. I don't know what I was doing or why I look terrified of the fire.



Or was I yawning?

Great pics. How'd you end up being selected as a torchbearer?

I had to explain it too many times, so I wrote an article about it.
