This is the second time I’m in South Korea, and this time I got to spend some time in the capital Seoul (that was a lot of “time” for one sentence). I really like it here. It’s a very nice and clean city. The food is great, though they don’t seem to be very used to vegetarians. But the many many different types of Kimchi are a hit. After a couple of days in Seoul I went to Busan. It’s a much smaller city than Seoul, but still 3 or 4 times more population than Stockholm. That will be my next update. Here are some pics of Seoul.

What can I say? Koreans people like to eat. I’m trying to keep up but it’s not easy. Order 1 dish, get 6. Classic. First up bamboo rise. some fish and spicy salad.
bamboo and bamboo leaf tea
and of course kimchi, kimchi, miso soup, tofu, crab, more salad, seaweed, kimchi and kimchi.
Today I felt for sushi so I ordered, as usual, salmon sushi.
They asked if I wanted Japanese or Korean style sushi, and couse as I’m in Korea I, of course, need to try it their way. I was a little surprised though when I got this (the red little seacreature was moving) and this
then a little sashimi
and then a little more sashimi and nigiri.
and of course different types of kimchi.
So if you go to Korea, be prepared to eat a lot, and not always what you think you orded!
After a very long flight and a 5 h minibus ride I finally arrived to Gwangju in the southeast of South Korea. The hotell is insanely nice and the service is awesome. Just eaten a traditional Korean 4 course meal which was veeeery good (pictures coming up soon). Now some Korean The Voice, then off to bed.
