Hey guise! Here’s Part 3 of the Eatyourkimchi Road Trip. Next week we’ll be out of Slow City and exploring a different area for some awesome food. But for now, peeeeaaaaacccceeee. Tranquility. And bugs. Lots of bugs.
Life was really different out here in Slow City. We’re used to the intensity of Seoul, the endless music, the people walking around everywhere, the buses determined to eat all other cars on the road. None of that was here in Slow City, though. I think I saw one traffic light in the city. When we went to eat at one of the, like, four restaurants we could find, they took their sweet old time. No one shouted. The loudest noises we heard were the crickets at night and the tires of the cars that drove by.
I doubt we could live here, or somewhere like here. We’re interested in living by the beach somewhere one of these years. Busan seems to be an obvious answer. But here things were just a bit too calm for us. It was great for a couple of days, though.
One of our favourite memories from this place was from right when we entered the city. You actually have to pay to get in. I think it was something like 1000 won or so. You can get in through the gate at the end of the bridge. On the other side of the gate we saw a fruit stand, and that’s where we bought the most delicious gigantic box of figs that lasted us throughout the couple of days we spent there. 10,000 won for twelve of the best figs I ever had.
Anyhow, now that we’re back out of Slow City and in the craziness of Seoul, we’re back to our hectic schedules. This week has been a bit wild for us. With YouTube FanFest this week, we’ve been shooting some really lovely videos, which we hope to share with you soon. And today’s the event for YouTube FanFest, where we’re about to perform in something like…5 hours. EEP! We should probably get dressed for that. And maybe eat some breakfast. Let’s go!
