Down Undah Backpackers, AKA Under The Bridge, is known for many things, but it is best known as a cop magnet, for someone manages to call the cops every time the Motley Crew coagulates and the Frenchman fires up the barbie. Here then, are some pictures of the action, minus the cops.
Greg Hardy, the guy who taught me to run up and down the stairs, threatening Yours Truly with a knockout punch.
Greg Dawson is the owner of Under the Bridge. He is married to Geumjeong, which means gold something or other in Korean. She is an accountant, and a busy one at that. Still, she manages to appear every now and then.
Guzel beckons from Central Russia. Kazan in Tatarstan to be precise.
This is Dave from Oz, who recently absconded to China.
Dave is married to a Brazilian and lived in Rio Grande do Sul, in Southern Brazil, for a year or so. His Portuguese is way better than mine.
Greg Hardy, explaining to (I forget what his name is), why there are so many sheep down undah.
Todd is from Canada, Eh? He works about 15 hours a week and makes enough to live comfortably from that time investment. He likes that.
This is Simon from Sweden. The first time I saw him he reminded me of a delinquent Canadian celebrity, so I nicknamed him “Justin Beiber.” He has been that ever since.
These girls dropped by to watch some videos in English. They are Yonsei University students, which means that they speak perfect English, and are probably smarter than me.

I was speaking Korean to this very charming (and very young) German girl, explaining that I was staying “under the bridge.” She asked me “Uncle, do you have a bed under the bridge too?”
