I know some of you are dying for pictures from my parents' trip, so here are a few from Monday. We went shopping in Songtan, the town just off the base.
Here we are in one of the purse shops. You can see the crack in the wall in front of my mom. That is actually a hinged door. It is a trap door in the wall of the store that leads you downstairs to "the good purses." When you go down the cellar steps, you are in a room with more purses. From there, there is another secret door leading to yet another inner sanctum. No, they are not stolen....just really good knock offs that would not pass inspection because of copyright laws.
Here is a view in one of the markets.
My parents were amazed by this bowl of chicken feet. They begged me to buy some for dinner, but I had to say no...bah ha ha!!!
This is the main strip in the shopping district.
Fish...and lots of kim chi
The "nutty Nolts" even found some walnuts in Korea.
