I meant to post about this a while ago… but it never happened.
We went into Cheonan for the day a couple weekends ago. It was great fun. We went to see
. Buying our tickets was a little interesting but luckily we found a foreigner to help us. The process, at least a Yawoori Theater, is to take a number (like at the DMV or something). Then you get called to the counter and pay for your tickets and pick your seats. Picking your seats beforehand is actually really nice because you don’t have to go super early to the theater to get prime seats. The movie we went to see didn’t start until 3:00 and it was only about 1. So we walked around the mall and went to eat lunch. We decided to eat here:
It is funny because even though we are not tired of eating Korean food, seeing this Pizza Hut made us so happy that we had to eat there. I couldn’t help being excited for “American” food. The same goes for when we see American/ English brands. The unfortunate part is that these brands are pretty expensive. David and I enjoyed a smallish pepperoni pizza for 25,000 won! We probably won’t be going back there anytime soon, especially when we found a much cheaper pizza place near our house that tastes better.
I also spent the 5000 won that my roommate Joann gave me for Christmas at a Starbucks! I bought a Christmas Cookie Latte for 6,000 won… It had tiny pieces of cookie in it and was definitely not worth $6ish but at least I got to go to Starbucks!
David and I saw our movie, then did some Christmas shopping (including buying lights for our room) and headed home. It was a fun day and we saw a lot of different sites!
