Day 2. We started our our day with a delicious breakfast at the Gwangjang Market (광장시장). We got there around 10 am and might have arrived a little late because some of the stalls and shops were closed. Even so, many were open, so we got to sightsee the market for a bit. For a market, I think the place is very clean and organized. It felt very different than the markets I've been back home in Indonesia. We ate and tried a couple of different things and after we're done eating we just walked around the market.
Bindaetteok (빈대떡) Pajeon (파전) Tteokbokki (떡볶이) Jokbal (족발) - Pork's Feet // Gimbap (김밥) Sundae (순대) I tried it and it doesn't taste as bad as I thought. Very interesting taste and definitely taste better with the sauce/dip that the ajumma gave us. After we got our stomach full, we headed to the subway station to go to Gangnam. The subway station is quite different than the ones we've been to. And we got lost this time. I wasn't quite sure where we were, but we were definitely not at the place that we intended to visit. It was pretty funny because we wandered off to a fairly quite area. But, we made the best of it and just laughed it off. What is traveling without getting a little lost right?
On our way back to the subway station, we went through what probably the longest escalator we encountered yet in subway station. I'm amazed on how deep underground the subway system goes in Korea. Also, I saw this interesting advertisement. Not sure what it's for or what it means, but it looked intriguing.
We saw something that's totally unexpected: a couple of guys walking donkeys on the other side of the street. Seeing something new everyday here. After Garosu-gil, we headed to Apguejong (압구정), also known as the Rodeo Street. The area has a lot of foreign brand shops that are very familiar to us. We just took a quick look around the area since the brands we saw are available in the States. Afterwards, we took two taxis to Gangnam because our feet kinda gave up on us from all the long walks in the past 7 hours.
