April has always been a busy month for birthdays in Canada, and one can officially say the same about Korea. On Saturday night a good portion of the foreign teaching community in Suwon went out to Itaewon and then Hongdae for a night of frivolity and dancing to celebrate several birthdays which all happened to fall around the same time.
I haven't had much of a chance to really spend an evening in Hongdae, and until this past weekend thought that, for nightlife, the neighbourhood was kinda overrated- to be honest, I'm not really a dance club kind of girl and Hongdae is reknowed for it's countless bars and dance clubs. This being said, the clubs chosen for this particular evening were awesome- way better than Tin Pan, which is the only other club I've experienced and reminds me of the dirty bar in my university town that I never wanted to go to.
That being said, here are some of the many pictures taken that evening (evening, early morning, whatever).
Cass: The Sound of Vitality. This is the drink of choice for many in Korea, and was certainly the drink of choice for the bus ride into Seoul. Yes, in Korea you can drink on the bus.
I did stop for street food with Rosie though. You see these things soaking in soup at street kiosks all over Korea- it's fishcake kabob. At least that's my name for it. The soy sauce conveniently comes in a spray bottle, hence covering your desired area quite evenly. I enjoyed some mandhu (I'm so typical).
