Time Capsule

Seoul Millennium Time Capsule

Seoul Millennium Time Capsule

600 items were placed inside this time capsule that are supposed to represent Seoul as a city.  It will be opened on Nov. 29, 2394.  That’s insane to even think about… but I’m sure that it will happen.  There was no mention of what is inside the capsule.  I’m really curious, but will be long gone by the time it’s opened.  The date picked to open the capsule is not random either, it will be the 1,000th year anniversary of Seoul.

It’s a rainy day and much cooler than yesterday.  If the weather is nice, this weekend we are wanting to go to Busan.  It’s on the south east coast, which is only a 2 1/2 hour train ride.  They have the super fast trains that run on some sort of magnetic track.  It’s called the KTX.  Otherwise it takes almost 5 hours to travel the same distance.

Great Street Corner

While in Hongdae, we found this cute little street corner.

Misses Mai

Misses Mai

This is interesting on many levels.  First, it’s just a pretty picture… great colors, fun building, cute little light out front.  Second, Mises Mai is the name of an Italian restaurant… this is the front door.  Third, I believe the name is a play on “Mama Mia”… which is probably the name they were actually going for here.  :grin:  It made me smile.

Market Foods

In the Anyang Market the booths alone were entertainment enough for the day.

Some of the booths sold food that we had no idea what it was and couldn’t even guess.

People take great care in their booths. All the food was rearranged constantly and made to look appealing.  Soon, I hope to go back to this place and pick up some more fresh produce.  It’s fascinating.  I definitely left this place very hungry.  Actually we left here and went to Baskin Robins for some ice cream.  Talk about a perfect day.  :mrgreen:
