For Thanksgiving, Patty & I attended a Thanksgiving get together in HBC [해방촌]. It was a potluck event, so we prepared some apple turnovers for the feast. Photos from the actual event will be coming shortly.
The day after my birthday party, Patty and I had a bit of a lazy morning, but eventually we got out and went to Dos Tacos. It's definitely a good way to start off a day when feeling a little rough from the night before. After having our share of Mexican food, we went for a nice mini-hike up Achasan. It's a mountain that's super close to Patty's place.
( Oh, yeah. We watched Iowa win a football game that morning. )
My 29th Birthday
2015.11.14 @ 용마랜드 & 홍대 [Yongma Land & Hongdae]
For my birthday, I asked my friends to trek all the way out to Mangu Station for lunch, followed by some drinks at Yongma Land. We got out a little later than planned, so night had already fallen. This ended up being alright, because the owner turned on the carousel lights for us. We played around a lot.
After Yongma Land, we went out to Hongdae for some barbecue followed by a Second Saturday punk show with Whatever That Means...

( It was somehow discovered that we could turn the carousel by pushing it. )
( This discovery resulted in about ten minutes of fun. )

Mangu Station [망우역] (Seoul Subway Gyeongchun Line / Jungang Line [경춘선 / 중앙선) - Exit 1
Exit the station and weave through the streets towards the mountains. Refer to the map below.
How to get to Hongdae:
Hongik University Station [홍대입구역] (Seoul Subway Line 2) - Exit 9 / Exit 8
Exit 9 is the most common exit that will take you straight to the fun. I personally like exit 8; it's a little farther away from the action, but far less busy. I've included a map with the places in this post starred.
