If you lived here you’d be home by now.

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks getting to know this area of seoul. There’s not as much trash on the streets in this area, and I’ve even seen a couple of signs asking motorbike riders not to ride on the footpath. There’s lots of different restaurants we’re slowly checking out although they tend to be a bit more expensive than cheongju and even when not eating out, buying things from supermarkets and mini-supermarkets is more expensive.

The Homeplus in cheongju was really quite handy I am now realising. Yesterday we subwayed for thirty mins to go to an ‘Ohmplus here in Seoul. It was smaller and nothing was discounted. All the stuff I liked to get there, western stuff like cereal, museli, various biscuits and so on would be 30% or more off because no one in cheongju was interested in eating that stuff.

Still no curtains in the apartment but everything else is pretty good about it. Nearly unpacked. Bought a couch (sofa bed) last weekend. It’s so nice to have a couch again — 7 years of couchlessness! The mezzaniney sleeping bit is fun but I feel like Alice up there when doing anything other than lying flat.
