Insa-dong

We didn’t get out of the house until late again today and it is 100% Keith and Sean’s fault for keeping us up late again (though it will probably happen again tonight). We headed for Insa-dong, a trendy, touristy suburb with a long main street full of little handicraft stores and street food. It was really pleasant to wander and shop, though I have well exceeded the budget I gave myself for this trip so far. YOLO. After a couple of hours of killing time wandering (including finding Seoul’s version of the Parisian ‘love locks’ bridge and adding our own), we went and found dinner at a traditional sort of ‘beef and leaf’ restaurant, where you cook the meat over little charcoal braziers and wrap it in lettuce leaves with vegetables and bean sauce and kimchi and all sorts of little treats. My stomach was happy.
