Today, we took the subway from Itaewon to Napyeon to see a second hand bookstore. As we were going into the subway, I realized I had shown everyone a subway on my blog, but I had never taken them down inside the subway, so I decided to take you guys with me. Itaewon is the place all the foreigners go in Korea. It is in the middle of Seoul. Napyeon is one stop away from Itaewon. We knew there would be no parking place by the bookstore, so we decided to leave our car at Itaewon and go to Napyeon by subway.
When we got among the people like this, there were so many foreigners today! We were at Itaewon, and as I keep saying, that is where all the foreigners go. I saw a group of Africans talking and laughing loudly, and I have no idea what language they were speaking. My daughter said she heard someone behind her speaking Japanese. There were women with headscarves and veils, Muslims. It is isn’t common to see a Muslim in Korea.
I took you down inside with me, and now we are leaving the subway. Our New Year’s Even isn’t over, but for those of you who have never ridden the subway, I thought you would find this interesting. I used to ride in the subway everyday when I first came to Korea, but I began having leg problems, and the doctors told me to stay out of the subways, so I only ride the subway occasionally now and usually go in my car. However, there are some places in Korea that is just isn’t convenient to go there by car. We were on our way to a second had book shop full of foreign books that not many of our foreign friends know about. Next, I will show you how to find the the book shop and the book shop itself.
