We were looking for things to do over the weekend apart from lesson planning. We decided to go to the Coex Aquarium as a result. It didn’t require a lot of planning or effort. We just hopped on the subway, took line 1 to Sindorim Station, then took line 2 to Samsung Station, which you’ve seen us take before, and we were there. The Coex Aquarium is actually inside of a mall, rather than being an independent building itself. The Coex Mall, by the way, is completely awesome, if you’re looking to do some good shopping. It’s monstrously large, very, very easy to get lost in, and home to many funky and interesting stores (as well as an aquarium!). Tickets on a Saturday afternoon cost us 14,000 won a pop, and we took a solid two hours to walk through the entire shebang. Mind you, we were taking a lot of pictures and making a lot of videos along the way, so it might take the average stroller half an hour to an hour instead. Speaking of which, we made a video of all the fishies, while Martina took a lot of pretty pictures of the fishies as well.
