Today we slept in really long and enjoyed our first night without tremblings coming now and then. I didn’t mind them that much but Emma always woke up by them and it actually is pretty nice to not have to feel it at all now.
That was the view this morning. The windows actually need some serious cleaning but they’re pretty awesome in size. We have a really good view of and it’s really cool. The hotel here has a golf-practice machine where you hit golf-balls on a screen 3 meters in front of you and a projector simulates the golf-course. We also have a gym that I haven’t seen yet. Gonna try to get some pictures of those things tomorrow. Emma has a video with a tour of the room here. We also have a bunch of channels, among those are japanese news and english Discovery channel. Having Discovery channel is awesome.
So today we just chilled out, got familiar a bit with the map and the area. Then we walked over to the closest shopping district. We found a good map that had names in English as well as the possibility to add markers for shopping, restaurants and tourist spots. We live in the top left corner of the following map and the shopping-bag icon is where there is good shopping. Took about 10 minutes to walk to the shopping district there.
We found a nice big mall and went in to find some good food. And good food we found! This entire meal was only 7500 Won (42 SEK or 4 Euro) and it was much and tasted fantastic.
On the way home we stopped by a couple of 7-elevens and random other stores looking for breakfast and some other supplies. We then found another fantastic thing. A 1.6 litre beer. I don’t know why, but that kicks ass! The best thing is that it only cost 5400 Won (30 SEK, 3 Euro). There are definitely some good things in this country! Stuff seems cheap and there seems to be a lot of shopping and some cool palaces and stuff to see.
Emma said that picture didn’t show how big the beer really was so here’s another one from her.
The only bad things I’ve found so far is that it’s slightly less clean than Tokyo, there’s a lot more cars and big roads and the people are not super-polite like the Japanese. But they’re still better than Americans
Oh, and it’s freaking cold :/
