Veganism and sausages

This morning, I made the trip up to Seoul with Melanie. I haven't seen here in at least a month! Since my birthday I think! She is always away in Busan with her boyfriend. This was actually her first weekend away from him, and she came to Seoul to see her friends who are leaving for Scotland next Friday. She saw me post about going to this weird Oktoberfest party, so she suggested we take the train up together and go to vegan lunch at Loving Hut. I had heard many things about this place, for example, it is run by an evil cult for brainwashing people. But I went anyway. We were joined by a bunch of other vegans and we talked about veganism and also, of all things, the CRTC and Can-Con regulations. I had two media studies majors at the table with me.

After lunch, Eva, Mel and I went to get some vegan ice cream, and then the other two went shopping, while I waited around.

After that, it was time to head to Mapo, where I met the group for the party. Suzanne said she was coming, but she never ended up there, so I had to fend for myself! Most of the crowd was under 25, so I felt a little old. I yelled at a racist drunk black guy, and tried to act as a "wing girl" for some of these young guys that I was meeting. That's how bored I was. It didn't turn out too well, but I tried anyway. Maybe I'll get better at it next time.

From there, I had to find myself a hostel. I had no idea where I would sleep that night and it was already 11 p.m. Luckily, I saw a bunch of Australians getting into a taxi and going somewhere. I hoped that they already knew where they had booked a room, and went with them. Sam, who is fluent in Korean, took me to their hostel while the others went to some lame club. We dropped off my bags and then went to the same lame club. We didn't like it, so we went back outside, where there was a drum circle. It didn't last very long, but what we saw of it was nice. I danced around a bit, and then waited in a giant line to pee, where I dropped my glass bottle of juice on the ground. DRAT. Then, I decided it was time to go to sleep. So Sam and I went home.
