Korea Seoul Gangnam Food

12 June 2022

Gangnaming

Briefly wandering around Gangnam in search of Taiwan

As I had not eaten since 6:30AM, I really just wanted food.
Luckily I am in Gangnam, and every type of food is readily available, with the possible exception of sand filled clams. I was spoiled for choice actually.
Also there are tourists, I almost lost count. There are a lot more flights back in the schedule now since I got here, and most of the COVID related testing requirements and vaccination requirements have been removed since I got here. I think this has resulted in an influx of tourists. Japan take note.

Anyway, I found my dinner very quickly and ate it at 5:45pm. Now I am hungry again.

Tomorrow it is supposed to rain, although the forecast says thunderstorms. It is also probably my last chance for a hike. Hmm. It will be a case of see what the weather looks like when I wake up, go anyway, get saturated.

Just a handful of pics tonight.

This is the official logo of Gangnam, and I think it is to recognise the Gangnam style thing which is that everyone in Gangnam is very selfish and only cares about money. Which is 100 percent accurate. However, big news! I.SEOUL.U was retired yesterday, and is being replaced by, 'My Soul, Seoul'. Really! This is big news, I.SEOUL.U is written on everything in holographic 3d spinning neon letters. Replacing it all will cost billions.

And final pic for the evening, a long underground tunnel between stations. This one is a bit more varied, a few restaurants, bakeries, even a greengrocer with the guy out the front screaming 1000 won 1000 won 1000 won!
