Saturday, instead of the Mud Festival (boo-hoo) we decided to get a sitter for the little ones and go rock wall climbing. Our friends told us of a great rock wall climbing facility here that even has an ice wall. Someone else, (I will not mention any names) was in charge of getting the directions off the internet, I ask that someone if he knew where we were going, and with confidence he told me yes, so we headed out. We took the subway over, which was approximately a 15 minute ride. While we were on the way I found out that someone did not have directions in hand because he could not get the printer to work. Ever heard of pen and paper? I guess not. This person said we could just hop in a cab and get a ride over to the rock wall facility. Hummm….well, I guess this person also forgot we speak ENGLISH, not the native tongue of Korea. However, we did try it. We got into the cab; ask him to take us to O2O2. He looked at us like we were crazy. We then started trying to play charades with him by mimicking climbing a wall in his cab. He thought we were crazier, so we got out of the cab and continued walking. We ended up walking in the rain for about an hour looking for O2O2. Did I mention, our umbrella was LEAKING, who ever hear of an umbrella that leaked? Come on now. Then, after we got out of the cab it broke. We did find a little store with more umbrellas, thank goodness. Finally we gave up on O2O2 and stopped in a little restaurant to eat. This place was fantastic. Hubby said it was the best Kimchi he has ever eaten. Boy 1 even liked it. Me, I tried it again, but still am not convinced I will ever like the stuff.

Although it seems as though I am complaining, I am not, just giving “that person” a hard time. We had a great day. Overall I enjoyed walking in the rain with my boys, and the food was great. However, next time we try to go rock wall climbing, I will be in charge & we will make it, we may even stop back by this great little restaurant for dinner on the way home.
