Day 5What I learned about Korea today: The only fault I found in Korea so far was the broken escalator in the subway. (Everything else, we broke and Korea fixed...like the toilet.)
What I learned about tae kwan do today: I'm not loud enough. It's not natural for me to make sound effects when punching and kicking in mid air.
What I learned about the markets today: I will NEVER get enough.
We went to Insadong today to do a little shopping. Insadong is full of souvenirs, artsy things, and a pair of singing Korean cooks.

All the major beauty brands/stores in Korea seem to have some sort of celebrity endorsement. There are always cardboard cut outs of them in front of the store. Here are some of the few I've seen:
|Ah! spoiled City Hunter girl|
Korean McDonald's with meat, meat, and more meat! (sigh)
|Catherine and I on the subway with our T Money cards - |
our key to the subway, laundry machines, and some vending machines

|Jeff Winger on Korean TV? YAY!|
|I end this post with something wonderful I saw on a bridge.|
|Graffiti on the bridge. Everything in Seoul is so positive!|
