Gwangjang Market

So the first two days have been a wild ride to say the least. My program group and I started off our tour of Seoul with a trip to Gwangjang Market, which has just about everything you could imagine. There were a ton of food stands selling fish, korean pancakes, tteokbokki, dumplings etc. My food vocabulary is so limited that up until this point I had been surviving on flavored milk and triangle gimbap from the convenience store – and it was a mystery flavor every time because there were no pictures… Every food item that I have tried so far has been delicious, but the amount of times that I have been corrected by Koreans and the waitstaff on how to eat my food is embarrassingly large.


Not my actual airline, but a great aesthetic!

Only 8 hours until my flights leaves for Seoul and I am so excited!  Here’s to hoping that my bag weighs less than 50lbs……..

Update: It didn’t, but that’s okay because I made it to Korea!
