Adventures in Hongdae

Last weekend Rich and I visted Hongdae, we had heard so much about this part of Seoul. I really wanted to go there as I heard there was a really great craft market there.

The market there was really amazing, like a Korean version of Craft 2.0 and just as busy! So many amazing artists there. I could have spent some serious money there but instead I was able to limit myself to one set of earrings, one necklace, a stamp and some stickers. But I am really keen to go back there and get some more goodies.

There are a lot of great food places in Hongdae and we had some burgers for lunch which tasted like they could have been from a cafe in Wellington.

After lunch we wandered around the stores and streets and for a moment it felt like we could have been in Cuba Street - lots of funky and alternative stores and cafe's and people.

We picked up a flier from the information centre which talked about an amazing tea house which we tried in vain to find - but we did find an amazing cupcake store and a very cool muesuem full of collectable's and figurines called "The World's Best Uniqe Muesuem".

Is it just me or is that the coolest place ever. So much to see! And monkey cupcakes? I am impressed! How's the teaching going? Hope your well,
