Yesterday I went to Sinchon with my roommates. We also stopped by Ewha which is close by. It was kind of strange to be back in the same location that I lived in last year. Overall it was much the same, although some of the shops were new. In Seoul it is very common for shops to close and new shops to take their place.
I purchased some cute socks for 1,000 won each (less than a dollar a pair). I also got toner from Etude House with some lotion samples Can’t wait to use these!
We also hung out in Gongcha, a popular cafe chain. I got an apple green tea drink and my roommates got bubble tea. We had the whole cafe to ourselves which was really nice. And out of the window we saw a statue of the blues brothers. Not quite sure what they were doing there, but I thought it was entertaining nonetheless.
For lunch we ate at a delicious small restaurant. I had noodles with rice cake which was only 3,500 won! The side dishes were bean sprouts, tofu, and pasta salad (which I don’t typically see as a side dish in Korean restaurants).
In the evening, my roommates and I went to our landlord’s house for dinner. The whole family was extremely kind and gracious, not to mention the food was delicious! A big thank you to Mr. Kim and his family for their generosity
This morning as well we went hiking with Mr. Kim and his wife. It was actually quite a workout, but the view at the top was incredible. It was also a beautiful day weather-wise.
I am always impressed with the beauty of Korea!
