My summer vacation is rapidly approaching. In the mix of my list of things to do before I leave (go to the dentist, find a sturdy suitcase) is to pick up souvenirs for my family back home. You know those little things that are emblems of Korea and look like they came from half-way around the world.
I knew the place to be was Insadong street in Jongno. This must have been my 5th or 6th time coming to this place but every time you go you see something fun.
Lola O in Seoul and Seoul Searching. They ran into two of their friends and it was a smorgasbord of girly fun.
They allowed me the pleasure of souvenir shopping while we teetered around from shop to shop. I won't reveal what I purchased, since my Mom reads this blog. But let's just say I found a few good treasures.
After treasure hunting we ate lunch at a familiar yet hidden spot in the area. Then we wondered on down to the Ssamzie artsy mall-walk area.
