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.
