More photos from Seoul - these were taken on the same day as the last post.
There are small reminiscences of the past throughout the city.
They've started giving people carriage rides to tour the city. Quite bizarre to see a horse in the middle of busy traffic.
While there are plenty of Starbucks in Korea, there seems to be just as many A Twosome Place, Coffee Bean and Pascucci.
A Twosome Place has a slightly more muted and generic feeling compared to its counterparts. It also has a pretty unmemorable name.
The most popular chain of bookstores in Korea - Kyobo. They also sell many other things like electronics and stationary.
One of the emails I get the most is: What camera do you use?
The answer is the Panasonic GF1; the white camera in this picture.
Unbelievably gorgeous and unbelievably over priced.
An Ebook reader from iriver called Cover Story. iriver used to be incredibly influential but now that the mp3 player market has collapsed (thanks to the smartphone), they are entering different markets.
The keyboardless form factor is actually quite interesting. The biggest issue is that it runs for around $250. The Amazon Kindle is $140.
This Samsung point-and-shoot caught my eye - the build quality is outclasses the camera.
The Samsung NX100 is Samsung's new micro-four-thirds camera.
