The only other eventful part of the first day was that evening when we all put crummy clothes on and ran down the sea! It was still pouring down rain, but we ran around in it and even got in the water! It was obviously FREEZING cold, but it was so much fun to jump around in the waves. Then we ran back into the penthouse and got the craziest looks from all of the Koreans that we passed! Also- we dragged SO much sand into that stupid place that it was covering the floors. Ugh I hate sand so much.
Sunday night we had some yummy street ramen and kimbap. SO GOOD. Then we went back to the penthouse and played Cards Against Humanity for hours. It was still pouring down rain when we went to bed, and continued until we woke up the next morning.
Monday morning, Drew and I woke up and went to TomNToms for coffee and Honey Bread!
There are TONS of pictures from the aquarium, so I'm making a slide show so this post isn't a million miles long! This aquarium is completely underground. Kind of weird, but it was so cool. LOTS of pretty fish! Most of the pictures are pretty blurry, sorry!
BUT once we were all rested up, a group of us decided to walk to this super fancy-schmancy casino and waste all our money. Busan is a very rich area. There are tourists from ALL over the world that go there. Everyone drives amazing cars and spends way too much money. Apparently this casino is a big place for a bunch of Chinese millionaires that have plenty of money to blow.
After the casino, we went to dinner at Bulgogi Brothers and had some bibimbap. OH MY GOSH I really despise eating out over and over and over. I just wanted a giant salad at this point. I need a Pizza Hut salad bar in my life.
Saturday night we had so much fun! We went to a Noraebang, which is a Karaoke bar. Not a normal Karaoke bar like in the US, but one that has private rooms for each group of people. That way you make a fool out of yourself in front of your friends and not random people! We had SO MUCH FUN at the Noraebang. We stayed for 2 hours and sang the night away. I wish we had gone to one of these sooner, because they are my favorite thing ever. I love Karaoke.
The dogs had been at the kennel all weekend and I was so excited to pick them up. This is the first time they'd been to a kennel, so I was nervous. Apparently, they had a blast! They had a huge yard to play in, and tons of other dogs to wrestle with. They didn't want to leave! I'm glad to know I can take them to the kennel whenever I need to now!
Even though it rained all weekend and prevented us from actually enjoying the beach, we still had a lot of fun just getting away from the craziness of moving. But of course, all of the packing and cleaning resumed as soon as we got back to Songtan! Almost home!
