So you all know that Dan's neice, Denice lives in South Korea, right? She's lived here for 3 years and is sadly leaving in February. Dan and Denice spent most of their high school years together so they are really good friends as well as being family. She has been teaching English to kindergartners in Bucheon which is south west of Seoul. By public transit it's a good 1 1/2 hours from here. Any time we had gotten together it was in the Seoul area or at church. It was time for us to go visit her stomping grounds.

Here we are eating Dak Galbi, Dan's favorite Korean cuisine.

Most times we eat Korean food we have to have either fed the kids beforehand or find a McD's or BK, and then give them ipods so they'll behave, or behave better than they would without! Sad isn't it?

After a yummy lunch and a tour of her apartment we went to a robot museum!

There were a lot of interactive displays and different robot creations throughout. However we were baffled by this train set. What was its relevance? Not sure. The scale was so off, with cows the size of the houses, roads that led to nowhere, space-y looking contraptions and other odd features. Still, since it was a running train, the kids spent most of their time here.

This game was the funnest part of the museum.

Back at the train...

And after the museum we wandered around a mall near Denice's house and found the food court down stairs. The had an Auntie Anne's pretzel place, and I was super super excited cuz they are one of my favorites! Their cinnamon sugar pretzel...mmmm.... I was a little hesitant to purchase though, because most Korean chains of American chains taste just a little bit different. It smelled so good that I took the chance, and oh, was it heavenly! Too bad it's so far away!

It was super fun to visit Denice, and we're so glad that she has come all the way over to us as many times as she has, now that we know how far it can be! Soon it will be a little too far...
