Stolen unashamedly from some random website
This is only one room…
Since I have the uncanny ability to pack my schedule as tight as comfort will allow, I left the Couchsurfers to take the subway to Honghae and meet up with Sejeong and her cousins Im Hyewon and Kim Jinhui at the Trickeye Museum. They were a little late (psh = P) but we made it there with plenty of time to explore. The whole concept of trick art is to take classics and make them into something a viewer can interact with; with often hilarious results. I’ve put together a slide show of the pictures we took. Since this is art, there is some nudity. Deal with it or skip the slideshow. You’ve been warned <3
The next morning we lounged around and played some more games while people prepared for our planned outing to the National Museum later that day. The Kims’ aunts and grandmother came by too, and I taught the aunts the wonders of Uno. I was just starting to learn the Korean game of Go-Stop (very complicated, I was doomed for failure) when everybody arrived. The whole group piled into two cars and away we went. All told, it was me, the Kims, Hyewon, two aunts, their grandmother, and Errol (Seyoung’s husband). We walked around for a while, and only covered a fraction of the museum, but by that time we were museum-ed out. There’s only so much time you can look at old things until you need some fresh air. So, we went out to dinner.

Can’t help but think of Redwall…
The three Se’s
After that I returned to the Kim’s place and had another relaxing night of TV and talking, again falling asleep on the couch in exhaustion. I’ll be sad when Sejeong returns to America, it was nice to see her again! Sehee will be going to Europe and Seyoung is going to visit her in-laws in the States, so it seems I will be in and around Pohang and the rest of Korea for more weekends in the near future. Which is going to be a great time =) I’m just glad I have an adopted family in Korea that is so awesome!

I shat in a toilet just like that in Turkey! Never considered writing about it, though. Thanks for helping me relive the experience.
Nothing was more awesome than the toilet story. Shouldve saved it for last. I laughed so hard on my busride this morning . Thanks!
