One of the best runs I've had in ages. It was like Singapore again only better, as I got up aryl morning and did a nice clean 12k along the Han River underneath each bridge and watching the other passers by. I came back and decided with my trusty guide pamphlet, to hit the ground running tourist wise. Seoul is in fact quite a big city, so you have to set aside some real time for it to look around. I think it's a population of 10 million, with most of it's inhabitants covering the cites, due to the fact that most of the country rests on un inhabitable mountains.

Covered a lot of ground and anytime I do that when it comes to tourist mode! I really feel like I've achieved something. Again there were hordes of Japanese everywhere, snapping their cameras at me. Gets on my bloody nerves and I actually don't find it flattering but extremely intrusive. In the end I told a few of them to "Point that fucking thing somewhere else" Seemed to do the trick for a while. I love it here and think that out of all the places I've been so far, I could actually live out here for a while believe it or not. Got back home in the early evening as I was still tired from the days travel before and had to sort out the rest of my Vietnamese visa, as I was in know mood on the 28th to be sent back packing.

Also arranged a DMZ tour with Ken the hostel owner. Something I was quite looking forward to and much intrigued about. This day was going so productively well I was almost feeling euphoric! Dinner time was a leo a treat as I opted for a restaurant that was on the lower floor of the building I was staying in. LIVING IN SEOUL was the name. Run by Jay whose photo is attached to the blog, it was a traditional Korean place with hiss lovely dear of a mum as the cook. She was so sweet and made me really feel welcome - not to mention her cooking which was amply divine. I finished my plate a full man, which is something I haven't often said is Asia after every meal, although the food in the region is lovely. Jay and myself goth asking over a beer and he too was the sweetest guy. Although he looks around 30 he's in fact 45, proving that like black, Korean also don't crack! Apart form being the restaurant owner, he was also an interior designer who had lots of friends involved in animation. We discussed life and in which Asia nations he thought I'd be poplar with the girls. A random subject instigated completely by him.

Once I'd done with food, it was time to eventually get set up for bed. I had another night in the hostel and feel all the more better for it. Had a busy day and this beautiful boy needs to sleep. Definitely more of the same tomorrow. Loving the Seoul!
