night lights!

I've been here for 8 months now, and this crazy wild city has become a home to me. In my comfort, I so quickly forget how foreign it really is!
Tonight I wandered around Myeongdng, taking pictures of the night lights, the people, and all the excitement. While this is normal stuff to me now, it isn't to you, and I thought maybe you'd like to see more of Seoul and the places where I spend much of my time.

Myeongdong is for super-shoppers. They have just about anything you could be looking for from name-brand clothing to knock-off underwear. You can spend hundreds of dollars in the stores, or just pocket change on the street. Honestly, it is an overwhelming place at times.

I don't shop very often, but I like to visit Myeongdong for the coffee shops and the food. Sometimes I meet friends there, sometimes I just wander, and sometimes I sit in a coffee shop and read or write for hours. My most recent exciting discovery is a bakery called Bread Talk where you can get fresh, warm, real blueberry muffins. They are delightful, and a rarity!

I also want you to know that I took lots of pictures tonight and not one picture of myself and my hair looked really great tonight! So yeah, I just thought I'd mention that.

Enjoy Myeongdong!

What an amazing city you are in! When you get home you should just make a book with all your picures because they are amazing and make me want to visit.

I'm surprised by all the English. Is it a touristy area or is it like that everywhere?

I could use some shoes. I am always on the look out for fun, unique shoes. Or sometime with you at one of those coffee shops would be great.

So, I would have liked to see your hair. I'm a red head these days (better than orange!!). I'll explain later. A four story Dunkin' Donuts?!?! If I knew how to print that I would. We now have a DD a couple blocks away. There are now 3 in Waukegan. The one in Highland Park and Zion are combined with Baskin Robbins. I cannot go there! (anymore!) When you come home we will hit a few of them!! Looking forward to your return to Illinois!
