Last Sunday, after hearing about some kind of celebration going on at Hwaseong Fortress, Charlene and I decided to go see some Korean culture. However, once we got to the fortress we were overcome by the heat and I reeeeally didn't feel like climbing the mountain, and then after talking to a tourist information attendant and realizing the celebrations were all over the fortress (five miles in diametre) and didn't start til 8PM, we decided to give it up and went to the nearby Paladmum Market for some kicks. This is what our journey looked like:
A fancy drum at Hwaseong Fortress
Bus stop at Hwaseong Fortress
The product practically sells itself!
Countless shoes for sale in Paladmum Market.
Mmmmm delicious grubs in old clay pots- a favourite snack for many Koreans.
The pretty sqaure in the middle of Ingaedong, where all the children come to swim. I really wish I had the guts to join them- I miss the river!
Thus ends my Sunday on the town. I'm glad I found a decent (albeit, expensive) cafe to lounge around now that I'm having serious Just Us! withdrawl.
