adam and i went out wandering around seoul a bit yesterday, but it was raining so we didn’t wander off too far. we stopped in at a little restaurant in an ally for lunch. we don’t know korean and the waitress didn’t know english, so ordering involved a lot of pointing to the menu and confusion. we ordered some sort of beef/kimchi barbecue prepared on a burner at our table that came with a dozen or so little side dishes. we had no idea how the food was supposed to be consumed, but we winged it and it turned out ok. it was a little more expensive than i would have liked at 58,000 for the two of us, but it was a learning experience.
