Little bit of this an' that, Churches and Abundance
another dam in Jeollabukdo
somewhere in the mountains in Jeollabukdo
Ewhwa Women's University has an integrated modern shopping mall that features - besides a rather big book store - several fast food restaurants, a hair dresser, an optician,...
Ewhwa is the most expensive women's university in Seoul and is surrounded by lots of girly stores selling clothes, make-up, ... there are a lot of caf? and body shop-like shops. A true women's paradise! (They even have a small IKEA)
26th October, near Seoul (outskirt)
One of the biggest modern churches in Korea (there are churches EVERYwhere*)
"Soon Bogeum Full Gospel Church"
from the outside
from the inside
Manga-esque Jesus as a different type of saviour: a screensaver :P
And for the safety (?) at home: PIN-based appartment door locks, no key needed (just don't let anyone observe you while entering the code/house...)
The "mothership" in Yeoido (Yeoido, might post more about Yeoido some other time)
Please put your donations here (right on the other side there's a bank machine ATM ;) )
* Churches are among the things you can find practically anywhere (at least at every other middle-sized street), normally they are situated in normal rooms, sometimes they have their own building.
Other things that you will find anywhere and in abundance:
- Noraebang (Karaoke Bar),
- PC Bang (Internet Caf? mostly used for LAN and online games),
- Convenience Store (like 7 Eleven, for the Germans: this is a little shop that has a little bit of everything and is open 24/7),
- Shigdang (a simple restaurant),
people selling food or goods in the streets (preferably socks/stockings or shoes) at low prices,
- Budangsang (real estate agency) & Hair Dresser,
- Yag Gug (pharmacy, mostly selling funny traditional Korean medicine in colourful small bottles that tastes like soda),
- Cell phone shop,
really I wonder who buys all these glasses and contact lenses??!
Also there are a lot of (clean!) public toilets, drink vending machines but very few waste baskets - still Seoul is very clean and very little trash lies around. I wonder how that works...
