So, uh, I still haven’t caught you all up on my first week and I apologize but tonight I’m not going to continue with my week.
Because we went to Seoul today.
SEOUL IS AMAZING. PICTURE FORCE GO!
Oh, but wait, side note. Do we all remember Tek? The guy who is nice but rubs me the wrong way? Eats with his mouth open?
We aren’t going to be friends, oh no. No no. If Tek and I never spoke again I think I’d be okay with that. He’s dense as a stack of rocks, patronizingly nice, loves to preach about how “The Lord Has Blessed his life and we should love God too.” Oh did I mention he doesn’t watch where he’s going at all? Just careens into people? Did I mention he asks you really awkward questions, then gives you a patronizing response when you answer it?
I hate you.
LET THE SEOULIAN ADVENTURE GO!
We wait for the bus in Suwon, we being Allen Tek and I, and then we get on the thing. It is crowded. Very, very, very, crowded. I can’t move in any direction without touching some part of someone’s body. On the plus side, some girl kept touching my ass.
I choose to believe it was because I was so hot.
A hour later we arrive in Seoul, and head for the Seoul subway. Tek takes us to a couple of shops in the subway and looks for some cheap DVDs as I look at the J and K-pop. Allen looks bored. He then takes us to a CD store where he wants to buy the Bible on CD. Too bad it’s closed. Better luck next time.
After dealing with Tek being very patronizing to the subway attendant “THREE TICKETS, THREE. THREE. WE WANT THREE.” (this all being said as the guy is printing them out) we finally get on the trains, and OFF WE GO.
So we arrive at the station, and Tek tells us he’s taking us to the electronics store. This turns out to be a mall. That is 8 stories tall. In the middle of this mall is five floors of electronics. That you can barter for. FIVE FLOORS OF ELECTRONICS YOU CAN BARTER FOR. OH MY GOD HEAVEN ON EARTH.
We ate some food. Tek paid for it. That was awesome. I got kind of drunk. Teehee. We wandered back to the subway and I didn’t care when Tek got us so lost we got home a hour after we planned to. Alas.
We made it home, Tek bought us icecream.
SEOUL IS AMAZING!
