We went to Suwon to go see Hwaseong Fortress again and to do some Christmas shopping. (We are so behind. Liam and my mom are halfway done.. Everyone else has nada. Oops) Whenever we go to Suwon, we always have a strict agenda. Like a doctor's appointment or a trip to the Fortress; we never just hang out and walk around. So. That's what we did yesterday.
Got to the train station and went straight to the Food Hall. It's this giant food court type place in the train station. Only, Korean food courts are 100 times better than American food courts. They have things other than fast food chains! Like sushi bars, gourmet cupcakes and other sweets, and delicious "fast food". We weren't hungry, but we of course had to get a bubble tea.
No it wasn't a temple or a monument or anything like that.
It was... Wait for it...
GOODWILL. Oh my gosh. Goodwill is already amazing. But a KOREAN GOODWILL?! It was as if I'd died and gone to heaven. Of course I made Drew backtrack with me so we could cross the street and go in!
After Goodwill, we kept walking and ended up on a street FULL of pet stores. There are pet stores all over Korea. I see them everywhere we go. They have all these precious little puppies in the window and it makes me want to skip down the street singing, "how much is the doggy in the windowwwwwww?" I always see the puppies while we zoom by on our scooter though, and I never get a close look. This time I told Drew we were going inside ONE pet shop and I got to look at ALL THE PUPPIES from the outside haha. And that's just what I did.
After the pet shops, and right before the Fortress, I found this lovely little doctor's office...
In other news. Here are a bunch of random pictures from the past week. They don't require much of an explanation, so here ya go.
These first ones are from our trip to Emart (Korean Target basically) last Tuesday.
Anyway.. these kitties were living in our garage. I had seen the momma cat tons of times, and the other night I had a dream she had kittens with her. Yesterday, before work, I let Rooney out to pee. He ran behind the garage to do his business, momma cat ran off, and I saw a little kitty head peaking over a pile of blankets in the garage. After work, I went back to look for it, but there were no kitties. Once it got dark, I checked again. TWO kitties! One ran away, but I was able to catch this little babe.
