In Seoul

Wednesday 11 January 2006

Arrived in Seoul around 11am. Caught the 7am bus from Ulsan and slept most of the way.

Went to Yongsan Electronic market and purchased a Canon A620 digital camera for 400,000 won.
This includes a 1 GB SD memory card and a case.

Went to Insadong and wandered around for a few hours. Found some nice items that I purchased for gifts for the family.

Went to Itaewon. Had a subway sandwich for brunch and purchased some leather bags. Then went back to Seoul station and waited for the train home.

Bike Ride

Today, Tuesday the 10th, I went for a bike ride, 60 KMs

Since I haven’t ridden for a while my time was atrocious, 4h7m
I did my first 100km ride in that time! My excuse is I was sightseeing and I did ride up a mountain twice!
Then I drank some coke when I got back home and despite the fact I should feel very tired I am still wide awake at 4am.
So I will stay up all night, and catch the 6am bus to Seoul. Hopefully I will catch some sleep on the way there.

Around this time last year we had lots of snow here in Ulsan. Ulsan compared to Seoul is very warm. There are many years where there is very little or no snow. So for me last year was a great pleasure as I have seen snow less then 15 times in my entire life and all but one of those was in Korea!
