Welcome to Seoul!

After almost 24 hours of traveling (and a lot of napping), we have arrived in Seoul, South Korea! It is dark by the time we arrive in Myeong-dong, and we discover that our hotel is just one block away from a huge night market! This is super exciting because we are really hungry 🙂

We found all sorts of delicious street food and crowds of hungry people! My favorite was the flame grilled octopus (upper left photo) – he grilled the skewer first, then flamed it with a blowtorch, then topped it with delicious spicy sauce and bonito flakes. We also had cabbage stuffed pancakes topped with a fried egg, sweet flaky pastry fish filled with red bean paste (yum!), and spicy pork with rice flour sticks (upper right) – Han’s favorite.
