|Jumping for joy... it's Taco Bell time, baby!|
|An amazing tiger latern.|

There are all kinds of little stores and stalls along the river, so as we were riding we saw a stand that sold cream puffs that were about the size of your face. It was irresistable so we screeched to a halt a bought a few. A guy took your puff, stuck it on a nozzle, and let a machine fill it up with delicious "shoo cream". Danny and I have made it a tradition to buy anything we can find filled with this magic custard-like cream and these puffs seemed to top them all.
|Oh yes... you are mine, Cream Puff!|
After we had gotten our fill of riding our cruisers we parked ourselves right by a huge fountain full of kids. This fountain is probably the best place I've found in Korea to satisfy my love for Korean kids. Yes, Danny calls it creepy, but I just think that Korean kids are the cutest thing ever and I found if you throw in a pool, the cuteness factor goes through the roof! (And, NO, it's not creepy!... I hope)
|Water + kids = cute.|
We spend the rest of our hours lounging in the sun and cherishing the fact that it was a Monday and we weren't at work. The simple things in life are definitely the best, so if you are looking for a great, and cheap, day in Seoul, go to the river!
So much is possible in Seoul, and this post is already getting to a ridiculous length, so I will end on a full stomach, courtesy of On the Border...
Danny and I finally loaded the train after a truly fantastic weekend. We may have been a few pounds heavier but I choose to believe we were full of good memories instead of chips and salsa. Seoul may not be the first place you think of when coming to Asia, but if you take the time to stop over, I bet you won't be disappointed... just as long as you stay away from the pig intestines... ba-dum-ch!
