I mean, it was still had a great time, and really-who comes to Korea for the Mexican food?
Sunday the girls had a playdate on the base. The Army base.
Where do you go on the base, aka "little 'merica"(I just made that up!)? To the play land at Burger King.
Ah! A bucket of Diet Coke! Don't worry, Grace didn't drink it, I did.
You can't get this size in Seoul.
Korea is really expensive, the base is not. You can't just go on base and buy things though. We got in via the play date and the one thing I requested before we left was an inStyle magazine. I know it sounds lame, but I really like InStyle and it's $10 at What the Book in Iteawon. So I was able to get my hands on one before we left base!
Since we were up north and the girls needed new shoes we decided to go to H&M. It was in Myeongdong. All I ever heard about Myeongdong is that there's a Catholic church there. Jim goes there almost every Sunday. But he never told me that there's awesome shopping in Myeongdong.
|We saw this street food. These are corn dogs with french fries |
|The is the H&M with a kids section, unlike the one that's a block away from this one|
This H&M was huge-4 stories. The kids section was on the top floor.
We shopped until we were exhausted and needed to go home. Well, I wasn't exactly sure how to get back to the subway. We wandered into the huge Shinsegae department store.
|Ready for Christmas|
This Shinesgae is unlike any department store I've ever seen. It's super fancy. It's kind of like if Neiman Marcus had it's own really fancy Whole Foods in it. So it is a department store with high end clothes and a food court and a grocery, but all really fancy.
How can I be homesick when I was shopping at H&M and there was a guy dressed like this on the train:
