He he he! It still makes me giddy just looking at photos of Dongdaemuen. A gargantuan maze of the most spectacular fabrics you'll ever see. Ever! My mom and I sent the boys and kids off while we spent the day here, stopping for nothing (is that why we were so hungry and light headed at dinner?)
As for the money I spent on fabric, what can I say? It was just all so sparkly!
Thank you menfolk, for entertaining the baby Dills for the day (and a half!)

I've heard of diamonds on your soles, but parakeets on your toes?

My kids could not get enough of this guy.
Aren't my parents youthful?
Ah. The 16,(384) strands of honey candy. Seriously, it was that many.
We stood there and watched. More than once.
American tourist suckers.
The Asian cultures seem to take pride in the front appearance of their homes much more than Americans. Even if their front door was in a tiny, concrete alley, they would have little potted plants to beautify their doorstep.
I liked this restaurant for a few reasons:
1. They were the only restaurant that had napkins the entire trip. (anywhere else you'd get nothing or an equivalent to 1-2 squares of toilet paper.)
2. It was vegetarian, so I didn't have to worry about eating the entrails of some bizarre creature.
3. We got to sit on the floor.
4. They had an entire wall with matchboxes.
5. We had to wind our way through a back alley to get to it.
