1st day in Suncheon

Actually, with the time difference, this is the second day of our trip. After arriving in Seoul, we left our luggage at Sophia's, then headed down to Suncheon which is 5 hours of bus. As we haven't slept much for the last 24 hours, I was not in full photograph mode yet. I took just a few at the highway stop, of course filled with food stands all over.

I found Captain Zorg, the korean version

When we arrived in Suncheon, it was already 6pm. The sun was already setting, so soon? The air feels good, the city is surrounded with mountains. After settling in our motel, we went in search for food. It must be because it's sunday, the little downtown was calm.

And here comes the food porn of the day!

My kimchi stew
Anne's dumplings ramen
Banchan - side dishes
ooh, my favorite tiny fishes!

The shop lady first said that she was out of Kimchi stew. But then she saw that we're foreigners, she explained that they're suffering a shortage of kimchi in Korea due to the heavy rains that spoiled the cabbages. But we showed her our excellent language skills and she finally decided to sacrifice her precious stock of kimchi for me :) The stew was explosively hot, as I have feared, but she was nice to serve me her kimchi so I had to finish it all up. It was manageable after all, very nice.

Tune in tomorrow for some gorgeous temple scenes and more food, I suppose.
