Well that was a fun week. I had GEPIK training from Tuesday to Friday, on Saturday I went to King Jeong’s father’s tomb with the kids from school for a couple hours then I met up with people in Seoul until night.
TRAVEL TIP: If you’re going from Seoul to Suwon at night on Saturdays, the last train leaves from Sindorim (direction Byeongjeom) at around 11:45, when you’ll get to Suwon there are still a few buses running for another 10-15 minutes, but it’s really limited. But cabs are in abundance.
Today I was woken up by ruckus outside my apartment. I had no idea what it was, but it noisy and destructive-sounding. By the time I got up, the destruction had ceased. When I left my place at around 1, I was shocked to discover that my hallway now has no roof. I have no idea what’s going on, or if I’ll ever have a roof again, but I’m just hoping it doesn’t rain soon.
I went to a FC Seoul soccer game with some friends I met at Temple Stay. It was pretty good. Obviously nothing exceptional like a Premier League game, but it was pretty cool. The crowd was digging it and it was cheap (8000won for a ticket). The only problem is that they play in the World Cup Stadium built for the 2002 World Cup, so the place is huge and 68 476 capacity dwarfs the couple thousand-ish crowd. Oh, and FC Seoul supporters have this little dance they do when they score a goal. It’s pretty cool. They won 1-0 against Daejeon Citizen. FC Seoul is currently third in the rankings, Suwon Blue Wings (my hometown team) being #2. I’ll need to go check out a few of their home games, it’s a good time and it’s just 30 minutes from my house.
