Considering I went to the nudie beach in Hawaii, I thought I would be throughly prepared for the Korean indoor version. One similarity: avoiding eye contact is always the best option. One difference: the only nudie bodies I saw in korea were old ladies.
If you noted my sweet pink shorts in the picture, I got them complementary to wear with a matching 2XL pink shirt. I felt like I was incarcerated in a really really nice prison. Lindsay lohan style. And that weird chair I'm siting on? Oh, no big deal, it's just a Korean reclining massaging leather seat. BIG SPENDER right??? Not really, cause i only paid 8,000 won!!!! ($8)
Overall: big nudie success.

Went to Seoul for the weekend. Was pretty sweet/ immensely huge and sardine packed with other humans. Ate some delicious smoked duck, collected some graffiti photos, danced at some fancy clubs and ate some deeelicious tacos. Hell of a good weekend.

Went to homeplus with Susan last night. It was uhmazing. We took the taxi through jochiwon and stopped at a four floor building. K-pop music was blasting and I was immediately in love. Every. Single. Thing. Was over the top adorable. And what wasn't crazy Korean/asian characters or cutesy animals was beautiful design. The packaging on everything from milk to nail clippers was so damn good looking. I bet Susan was dying cause I kept stopping and looking at everything. I also bought a huge ass bag of can-cho. ( my favorite new sweet. Cookies with chocolate insides!!!!)
Also had my first true blue interaction with a true blue Korean. I was trying to find the curling irons and couldn't find them for the life of me. I worked up the guys and asked a cute old lady that worked there. "awwdee" (where) and then pretended to curl my hair. It took a couple of tries but we actually figured each other out and it was great! One down twenty thousand to go. :)

explored seoul today in the pouring rain. some girls told me it was acid rain. super exciting. i tasted some though and couldn't tell the difference between idaho rain and korean rain. it must all be a lie!!
also ate my first true blue korean food!!! which is totally true except for the fact that it was actually a japanese restaurant. :)

Now, even cooler than the food, there was a touch screen movie/music player. i watched a korean movie and the translation was quite funny. ( i was able to work as a top DJ here cuz of me hard tootin' efforts!)
5,000 miles and 11.5 hours = slightly painful, but totally worth it! im in south korea baby!!!!
