just me. October 13, 2009

    Thanks for your journal on Strathfield in Sydney. My wife is so excited after seeing your duboki stand photo. We are flying to Sydney (from Melbourne) tomorrow to try it out.

    Hello, I love the pictures of Seoul. I am the mom of one of the kids in your picture from the Holt Reception Center. We were recently matched with her to adopt her and will be traveling in the fall to get her. She is the one in the yellow sitting in the highchair with ALL THE HAIR. Would you mind sending me the pictures you have of her? This one and any others that you might have? It’s such a blessing to get extra pictures of my baby!

    Love your web site, we are new to Seoul & i cannot find on any maps where Garasugil is located. We are in Seocho-Gu. What subway station would take us to the neigborhood where you ate Buldak.
    BTW we love Chicago, staying at the Dana hotel & Eating at MK.

    • thanks for stopping by! so garasugil is in sinsa dong…sinsa station, line number 3, exit 8. if you walk straight a few blocks when you come out of the exit, and walt to j tower (you can’t miss it), take a left, and that main street is ‘garasoo’. you will see a strip of cafes and restaurants!
      buldak is in jong no…i lost the address! but i’ll will find it and let you know 🙂 did you move to seoul recently?
