Seoul and 2 months in SK

After about 2 months of being here, (Jan 8, 2011) I finally got to go to South Korea's capital, Seoul. It is not like it is in the movies, have I ever seen it in the movies? I don't know, but all I know is that is it huge. Way huge!!! Too many subway lines and traffic and people. But I traveled with friends, so they knew what they were doing...Busy streets of Seoul!

This is our cultural part of the day: Korean Veteran Wars Memorial
Pretty interesting, but museums are museums.....

May, Cece, Phumee

Waiting in the bus terminal??? Everything is like a shopping center so I am not sure where I am half of the time.
Kabao, May, Ach, Phumee, Cece

Finally girls night out!!! More Hmong girls in South Korea! We went to a club in Seoul, OMG Koreans are crazy! They party til 6 or 7 in the morning. I say it's like an Asian Vegas here!!! Couldn't take pictures in side, but I will next time!

So overall, it wasn't a bad experience! I had pho and Thai food while adventuring there in Seoul.

This past weekend was awesome! Went over to Cece's Pho Dinner party and had great company!
Good food and people to keep my days here more homey!!!

Nancy, Phumee, Cece, Boom and Chris minus Kou, he was taking a nap!

This is a picture of the gang at a Notabon?? Karaoke place in Geochang.... I don't sing in to the mic, but overall it was fun! Drinks and singing!!!

2 months here and I have learned a great deal about myself! I cannot live far away from family! I should be packing up and going home soon, but I am giving it until summer, so hurry up friends and cousins come visit!!!

So I have exactly 300 days left here in South Korea.....basically 9 months and 20 more days to go, I think I can make it!!! If not I'll be home sooner than later!!!! The only thing that makes it better are the kids!!! They have grown on me and they are all awesome!!! Always sharing their food and snacks with me, I feel like a little kid all over again....

  1. Seoul sounds like so much fun, so much to do and see. It also seems like nothing ever closes. I'm glad you had a good time. You should record yourself telling us about your experiences, Phu. That way we get to see you actually explain what all happened. Keep them pictures/ posts coming. I enjoy reading them all. :)
