Vampire Repellent

Garlic features prominently in Korean cuisine. Here a garlic vendor sells some to the operator of a small restaurant near Samgakji subway station. I am told that Seoul is not a popular destination for vacationing vampires.

Wow what a cool picture! I'm glad you told us it's garlic because I wouldn't have guessed that. When our children came home from Korea our case worked told us to eat a lot of garlic because the babies were so used to that smell of everyone's breath and that it would comfort them.

wow..a truckload of garlics.. the koreans must really love them!
I guess if everyone smells of it, no one will complain of bad breath caused by garlic then..

Kenziekylanmom - yes, the smell of garlic in the close confines of a subway train carriage can at times be overpowering. The best defence is to adopt the "when in Rome" approach and eats lots of the stuff as Murphy_jay suggests.
