A Korea-ing We Go

Yeah, I know. No posts since April. Blah, blah, blah, I've been busy.

I'm in Korea (Seoul) right now and I just got back from the Electronics Market. What a let down. I was hoping for homegrown electronics, stuff you can't find in the US and general coolness of gadgets. What I found was keyboards, mice and USB/Portable drives. Not even some cool knock-off MP3 players!

Now yesterday I went to Itaewon for some wife-shopping. Yeah, clothes, shoes and accessories coming out the Yin-Yang. High quality stuff too if you were careful. Custom tailored suits for like 350 USD, knock-off Coach bags for like 60 USD and everything can be haggled for, especially when paying cash.

Oh well, I guess I'll have to try Hong Kong or Japan (Akihabara?) for the experience I'm looking for.
