I FIGURED OUT THE SUBWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In other more interesting news, yesterday we went on the Seoul Tour Bus and got to see all kinds of interesting and wonderful things- with auto commentary! Oh, jah!! On this tour, we stopped and got hit on in a large market place and ate really greasy, fried "tornado potatoes" (which were delicious, by the way...). Everyone assumed we were all from America, and the other girls seemed offended and said where they were from, I tried to lie and say I was from Canada, but they would not let me :(. Then, we went to the set up of traditional Korean houses, which was kind of just another palace (which is, of course totally ok! I come from the US, where the only true castle is in Disneyland). While there, we visited a traditional doctor and had some herbal tea that was supposed to cure of us of anything and everything. The doctor told me I needed to get more sleep (I'm still getting used to how hard the beds here are !!), sweat less (Koreans have the least sweat- smelly glands and sweat the least in the world, so :/), eat less (!), take walks in the sun after lunch, not to exercise in the two hours before bed, and to get a Korean boyfriend (preferably one with good humor). Then, I was given some nasty powder to mix with water and drink for two days. it tastes like chalk and maybe some sort of powdered mushroom- ish stuff.
Last night, i also gave an English lesson to my host family's kids. We read "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and sang "Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes" in three languages, which was pretty fun!
I'm so excited to see what happens next!!!
