Hubby and I found Insadong on our date this past Saturday night. This picture is from one of the many shops crowed along the streets in Insadong. This is a place we will take all visitors. Insadong is filled with shopping, restaurants and they say antiques, although I did not see any. Hubby said we did not go far enough over to find the antique shops. We will be going back again. I just don’t know how we are going to see everything we want to see in the short amount of time we will be stationed here
Hubby and I having a traditional Korean meal in Insadong. We are having bulgogi, Korean pizza, which was one of my favs, and nothing like American pizza, of course there are a couple of types of kimshi on the table, which I cannot stomach, but hubby enjoys. There are things that looked like cooked bugs which turned out to be peanuts, and we had raspberry wine. I have yet to try soju, cheap Korean whiskey, which is very popular amoung Korean men. Hubby tells me I should never try it, but I think I must, at least once. Anyway, our meal was very good.
These young Korean students stopped us & ask if they could ask us 10 questions. It was for one of their college classes. They ask questions like "what is your name, where are you from, do you like sports, which sports do you like, what are your hobbies, and what do you think of Korea". One was asking the questions, one was writing the answers down and the other was recording all we said. They were all very polite and ask if they could take a picture with us at the end.
We started heading back towards home when hubby ask if I wanted to go to the underground shopping. I had no idea we had been walking on top of more shopping!! Of course my answer was yes. We headed down and found more shopping than I ever thought possible. I should have known, because Korean's are masters of space. Anytime we go shopping here, it just goes on and on. You can walk into what you think is one shop, and it branches out into about 50 more shops. It is crazy. If you find something you like, you need to buy it now, because you will never find the shop again. I am thankful hubby goes with me because if not, I would probably still be lost in the tunnels of underground shopping.
