I can't believe that in a few days our trip is going to be over! It has gone by so quickly! Yesterday we had an awesome day shopping and spending the day without anywhere we needed to be. We had a wonderful trip, but very little downtime to just wander around, so yesterday was that day.
When we were with the tourguides the other day we went to a really good restaurant in Insadong and we wanted to go back there again yesterday. We thought we knew exactly where it was, but Insadong is full of little side alleys that all look alike and we couldn't remember which alley we had gone down. It was pretty comical, really, lol! We wandered around forever looking for it, and we finally found it and had a wonderful lunch!
Then we wandered through the shops in Insadong for a while and I had to resist the urge to buy EVERYTHING!! I want reminders of Korea in our house and I so badly want to buy art and dishes and everything else, but of course that's not realistic. We have to get it all home! So we have bought some fun little souvineers but unfortuately not enough to completely redecorate my house. :)
This morning we're going to Namdaemun market, which is a huge outdoor market, to do some more shopping and then this afternoon we have another meeting at the agency to see Clarissa again!! YAY! :) We're coming armed with books and toys this time. :)
Tomorrow morning we're doing some last minute sightseeing and then at 2:00 we FINALLY get to take Clarissa with us for good. We'll go over to the agency and say our final goodbyes to the foster mother and then we'll bring Clarissa back to the hotel with us for the night and the next day we'll fly home. I'm so nervous about the final goodbyes. I'm trying not to think about it too much yet, but I know that tomorrow is going to be really hard.
For now we're off to start our day. It'sa beautiful day in Seoul and we're of to enjoy it!
