We all got an early start this morning and wanted to check out the dollar store. Jim and I had passed it the other day when we were trying to get to the LotteMart the first time. We took the bus and took it to Suji-ro, where there are lots of shops and construction (they're extending the subway).

If Emart is the Walmart of Korea, I think LotteMart is the Kmart. We got a few things from the Toys R Us section of the store.

I feel that all of you needed to see a few things I saw in the ladies room.

|A sound machine. I wouldn't have pressed this button (because doesn't it look like it notifies someone that you need help?) but I backed into it when I was shutting the stall door. It makes a flushing sound followed by running water|
Before leaving we got lunch at the LotteMart food court (skipping the beloved TGI Fridays for today...).
Anyway here's how the food court works both here and at Emart. There is a glass case with a plastic replica of all the different options (think dessert tray at a restaurant). You choose the number you want and pay, then the cashier notify the restaurant of your order and when it's ready, your number comes up. When you are done with your meal you take the tray and all the dishes back to the restaurant.
The food today was great. We had some breaded pork (something like Panko breadcrumbs but bigger), soup, rice and dumplings.
When we got home we all fell hard asleep for 2 hours. I can't tell if it's still a little jetlag or the heat or both.
When I woke up, I went to Kim's Club (the grocery) and did my grocery shopping. I took the perishables home with me on the bus and they delivered the rest-for free! (speaking of, we have got to learn how to ring someone up to our apartment).
