First day in Seoul

>> Tuesday, August 7, 2012

For the first excursion to Seoul, we decided to do something low-key.  This was a test run to make sure we could successfully navigate the subway system and get in to Seoul.

The first thing we saw when we got out of the subway? Chuar! (or, at least the Korean equivalent).  It was so delicious.  Sam was in 7th heaven.

We were looking for a little stream and on the way we found this street full of hardware supplies. It went on for blocks.  We're currently remodeling our house so we were salivating, trying to figure out what we could fit in our suitcases.

We did find the stream.  It was underground until a few years ago when it was restored.

We went down to the stream and met this guy.  We asked him to take a picture and he proceeded to do a full photo session. 

Out of kindness to you, dear reader, I'll only post a few.

Here's me pretending to eat some poisonous plant. I didn't really eat it. Don't worry.

Cool orange-clothed-man walking along the stream.

Would you bank here?

I loved these signs.  No doubt here that the store is having a sale.

We made it to Seoul and back safely and in good time, ready for our next adventure.

You guys are brave and adventurous. What is chuar?

Steph, Chuar is bbq meat on a stick. In China, they had lamb with curry and pepper. This Korean one was a sweet bbq. It was really good!
