May 14 - Seoul
After a good sleep I got up at 8:30 a.m., took a shower and had breakfast in the cafe again. There I met a German couple from Starnberger See, whose daugher is married to a Korean guy. They were just visiting the country for the christening of their grandchild. We talked a little bit and at 10:00 I met my "new" guides for that day: 1 man named Woo Seung Ho (English name = Jack) and 1 woman named Yoo Soo Jung (English name = Crystal).
They took me to the Naksan Park first from where we were supposed to have a nice overview over the city. Unfortunately it was rainging that day and the view wasn't as great as suspected.

|how to eat: put lettuce on your palm and add rice, meat and - if you want - other side dishes, then roll up the lettuce and eat it at once|

(I really liked the movie, but Crystal was sleeping:-) )
At 18:30 I was back at the YH (the guys had brought me back as well) and a BIG THANK YOU TO MY GUIDES AGAIN!!!!
After returning I was tired and read in my book.
Gabi, the French woman, would leave the YH and heading for Japan the next morning and so she packed her suitcases about 3 hours that evening!!!
That night was noisy and almost sleepless again, most of my roomates came back late and turned on all the lights again in the middle of the night....
