Today I had the craving for pizza once again. And one of the friends I made at the training session got a hold of me so the two came together. I went to her part of Seoul which is in Gangnam. When I came out of the subway it became clear to me that I was definitely in the well-to-do area. Kind of like 5th Ave in NYC where all the designer shops are. Here the streets were lined with very tall and gorgeous buildings that had big name designer brands on them. There weren't a lot of people on the street but I think that was because it was still daylight out.
Anyways I met up with my pal Karlan and we went for pizza. The place she chose wasn't so uppity but nice and cozy with well prized pizzas and pastas. We shared a pepperoni pizza and Caesar salad. Sorry was too hungry and ate before realizing to take pictures. Afterwards we wandered around the area in search of a Baskin Robbins but found none. Instead we saw some sites. For example here is a building with a Gorilla sculpture on it, which is an advert for the backpack it is wearing. And we found an "American Diner" that promised a real American experience but with 'safe' beef. Poor company is probably trying to make sure people know its beef is safe, yet still appeal to the whole American burger fantasy thing. Whatever that is? Anyways, a day out on the town wouldn't be complete without a shot of me. Seoulites dress so much better than I do, with their high heals and Gucci bags... I feel like the commoner. But I like some of the fashions and have an itch to go out and buy some new clothes. Yet I think I should at least get paid first before I go out on the town and empty my wallet.
Well its been a nice long weekend. I got all my planning done (except for a few classes I forgot the books for). So tomorrow I can clean up the place and relax.
