When we first moved to our new neighborhood, I wondered if I would feel safe walking around at night. Unlike where we lived in Ansan, there are no flashing neon lights and tons of people walking around at all hours. Although the city of Suwon is the second biggest in the province, we live in an older neighborhood with 1970s style houses around us. The first week we moved in, I was walking down our sparsely lit street at night when I saw a group of three or four people coming the opposite direction. I had my key in my hand, ready to sprint for our front door if needed... when the group came closer to reveal a pack of backpack-laden teenage girls. Silly me, did I really think there would be danger?
