I cannot drink alcohol for a month (don't really want to either, only 4 months left and still so much left to do!) so I have been filling my weekends with plays, festivals, dinners, shopping and sightseeing. Last weekend was the Vagina Monologues, (which I had never seen and it was amazing) and this weekend a friend is starring in Macbeth in Myeongdong so we will spend our Saturday night getting a little culture. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom now so Sunday will be spent outside on Yeoi-do (do=island, this being a small one in the middle of the Han river, connected on the subway line) enjoying the trees and fresh air.. or nuclear fallout from Japan, whatever. Other things on my sober Korean bucket list before I leave in 18 weeks (124 days and nights to fill, not that I'm counting):
Deadmau5 - in May (probably not sober for this one...)
Lotus Lantern Festival - Buddah's birthday!
- Get some good hiking in, there are some great mountains in and around Seoul.
- Check out a Korean baseball game
- Mud festival - July
- Seoul Grand park (and zoo!)
- Seoul land or Everland, I can't decide...
- Sit outside of Family mart and drink
