Seoul

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.

Food food and more food!

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. 20120503-004717.jpg some fish and spicy salad.

Salmon Sushi? …

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

So if you go to Korea, be prepared to eat a lot, and not always what you think you orded!

Hello South Korea!

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.
