We went to Seoul for the weekend because I wanted to get a royal banquet, which I missed out on all year long because no one would ever go with me. They cost upwards of $60 so I guess that's why.
We randomly found this horrible hotel, the door to the room opened into the bathroom and THEN the room. I wish I took a picture it was ridiculous. There also wasn't a sink. Oh well, the old lady that ran it was nice though. She always wanted to know what we were doing and where we were from etc. etc.
On Saturday we tried to go to the zoo but didn't make it because it was closed for bird flu reasons. Seemed a little excessive but those are the facts.
We ended up at the contemporary art gallery that is not far away. It was good, but a little bit empty feeling. It was ginormous but there wasn't a whole lot of art in it. What was there was pretty good though. Then we went to the science museum, which Dave really liked and I tried hard not to complain about. The insectorium was supposed to have butterflies in it, but we only saw two of them. I really liked the thing that showed how the earth moves in landslides (see video).
Then for dinner we went for the royal buffet thingy at Korea House. They put us in the back in a dingy room, but it was still really good anyway.
