Jared's article connected with me as I've often turned to crowds to find peace. The subway, el, metro, metra, bart, or T can encourage retrospection. I'm curious what y'all think as I tried to reach out to friends who have lived in a few different cities.
It resonates...but with my experience riding Seoul's subway. I think because Korean culture is, at its core, much more communal than America's - especially in DC.
Also, I think that the therapeutic aspect is only true if you're not in any particular rush to get somewhere (like work, or home). If you're trying to get somewhere, WMATA's constant delays, failures and crowded cars is anything but therapy.
