Adventures in Seoul || My Last Week in Seoul Part 1

I don't have the right words or pictures that can capture exactly what my last week in Korea was like. This blog entry may not do justice to the emotions and experience I went through. It's not something you can just write out or show. You just had to be there with me. But for the sake of my blog, my readers, and walking down memory lane I will attempt to summarize it in one blog entry.

[A lot of my pictures were taken with my cellphone so the quality isn't as great. It was more convenient for me as my schedule was so busy and I was always on the go.]

{59/366 - Pastors}
My pastors like to dress the same when they're working. These are my main pastors of my church New Philadelphia Church. Having P. Marcus and P. JM in my life this past year changed my life. The wisdom that flowed from these men were like gold. A lot of this gold I tucked away but I'm sure it will come into use later in my life.

{60/366 - 북한산/Bukhansan Mountain}
This is the tallest mountain in Seoul. It is pretty awesome and easy to walk up. I spent this whole day with Sol, Peter and Myunghwa. We didn't do anything extravagant but being with the whole day was perfect. It makes me wonder why I have to grow up and be responsible. 

We spent almost the whole week together. I met her last year in August through a mutual friend's goodbye event and knew right away we'd be good friends. Before really getting to know her I secretly looked up to her and thought to myself "I want to be like Sol".  I consider myself very blessed to have her in my life.

{61/366 - kimbap, friends and cellphones}
This is a typical Korean meal to eat when you're low on cash and don't want to eat anything too extravagant. Kimbap and Dduk-bok-gi. Dduk-bok-gi is rice cake with spicy red pepper sauce. I don't know what it is, but it's so good. This place, D. Deli, was my favorite place to eat at. Mary and I were always budgeting and being wise with our finances, so we enjoyed eating at these kinds of places. Korea was also a place where it was common to see a smartphone being used to snap photos while eating. 

Mary was someone I could talk to about my crazy and silly dreams. We always inspired and motivated each other. We talked a lot, and usually that was all that we did. This day we just went to the mall, bought expensive nail polish and skin care products and talked. Even though we wanted to be adventurous and discover new places in Seoul we always ended up sitting at a cafe and talking. She's a keeper. Life-long sister and friend. 

This is part one of my update on my last week in Seoul. More to come!
