Day 2: Seoul, Korea

Seoul at night.
We met up with our friend Matt and went out for Indian food!

Gotta love this shirt!

After a long day of conference talks we decided to explore Itaewon, a neighborhood in Seoul that is known as "little USA" because of the American shops there. This area is also greatly influenced by the US military presence.


This is the view from our apartment.

Day 1: Seoul, Korea

Get ready... there are lots of pictures!
Here are some shots of the neighborhood around the University where we are staying.

Navigate THIS subway system!

And, if you're missing home, there are always those familiar places to munch at.

Here we are visiting a park in the middle of Seoul. And below are some of our favorite Engrish messages. We never tire of finding those.

Especially, Bunny Chicken.

For lunch we explored the neighborhood of Insadong where we had lunch at an all-vegetarian Korean Temple Food restaurant, Sanchon. YUM!

Dave couldn't resist partaking in the

"something" on a stick street food craze.

We were extremely entertained by this massive ball of fruits and vegetables as a street sculpture. And some onlookers were extremely entertained by how entertained we were with it.

We also explored the large and gorgeous Gyeongbokgung palace grounds. Can you tell that it is extremely humid? We are super sweaty in every picture.

And, yes, we all know how I love cereal. Not only did we find more cool cereal boxes, we also found digital price tags!

Hello from Seoul, Korea

We arrived safely in Seoul, Korea on Thursday night. It's Friday morning and we're about to eat breakfast before a day of exploring. More pictures to come!

They're Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!

Come on now people, you can't deny it, San Francisco is the best city ever! Today we did one of the most "SF things" you can do... we went to the SF PRIDE PARADE!

and a little Stern Grove on a Sunday afternoon never hurt anyone either
