Senior Project - Beyond Pacific


Day 13 in Seoul

Yesterday, while Amy was meeting her friend she met at summer camp, I met my middle school friend who now goes to college in Korea. I got a chance to eat lunch at their cafeteria and visit some of the classrooms in their building. The price of their lunch varies from three to seven dollars depending on their menu. The one I tried was called sogeum-gui, delicious grilled pork with rice. Their classroom reminded me of Kousen’s: it was a large room with aligned tables and chairs, and students take rather passive roles while the professor lectures.

Today, Amy and I had lunch with my mom and my aunt at an Italian restaurant. Their T-bone steak and aglio olio spaghetti tasted amazing.

From there, we went to a Korean water park called Caribbean Bay, located about 50 minutes away from our house. Since our trip to Disney Water Park last winter in Florida was rather disappointing, we wanted to experience a different waterpark that is known to have many fun rides. They didn’t let us down. Their ride ‘Mega Storm’ was the most fun water ride I’ve ever ridden. The best part was that because it was a weekday and before the start of summer break, the water park was pretty much empty. We were able to ride Mega Strom three times before its closed at 4:30 (we arrived there around 3:00). We also rode some indoor water slides, which were also delightful with their fast speed and constant splashes.

We finished our day at the water park by dipping in their indoor hot tubs and saunas, then headed off to Famille Station, where a collection of restaurants are located underground near the Express Bus Terminal. For dinner, we had mandu, which resembles dumpling, and kimbab, a traditional Korean dish made from rice and other ingredients rolled in gim.
