Seoul Day 4
On my last day I can’t go far as I have to head to the airport in the afternoon, so I just walk through parks, along the stream and to my last palace. And at the end I find the restaurant I was looking for all the time, an English menu and a display with all the dishes, and cheap. A Korean style fast food place, I wish I’ve found it after arrival!
Mostly you find places with plenty of fatty meat dishes, pork belly etc. and Ribs on BBQ, those smell fantastic but are out of my price range.
Well, I didn’t starve, and I really want to come again and spend more time. Also go countryside and visit some national parks!
The sights of day 4:
