Korea Seoul Gongdeok

12 November 2022

It had to rain eventually

Seoul station to Gongdeok

9th day in Korea and it is the first day with any rain. It should be gone by morning and then no more rain on the forecast. Hopefully that stays true.

The rain killed the protests. The need to not get your hair wet out weighs the need for political change.

Of course I have no concerns about getting my hair wet, because my hair is awesome, so when I planned to go somewhere undercover then noticed after a while that it was not really raining, I just set out in a random direction and hoped for the best.
It turned out ok, I only got mildly wet, went to a different part of town (Gongdeok) and found my dinner.

Due to rain and my non waterproof, dust magnet of a camera, not many photos tonight.
Tomorrow I go to Gwangju, it takes a couple of hours on the bullet train. My train is not until later as the check in time at the hotel seems to be 4pm.

There are not many trains in the station. My train tomorrow does not leave from here, it leaves from the very nearby Yongsan station. I think the departure station depends on if you are heading South East or South West. It is probably a trap for young players if you are not aware.

Instead I went to a Poke bowl place, of which there are many here. Rather than salmon or tuna, BEEF. There are a lot more things under the lettuce. The baked beans were an interesting addition. Now to dry out and then go in the shower and get wet again.
