I didn’t realise the monsoon season here is now. I always had September in my mind. If I’d done any research and checked beforehand, I’d have probably had the bike freighted straight to Russia. But that would have been a shame, as I’d have missed some great experiences.
Today for example, it rained. A lot. I decided not to put my waterproofs on when I left, because the sky didn’t look too bad. They’re also hot, and they leak! Getting through Seoul and out the other side took almost 3hrs in the traffic. All of that time it trained. Once we’d found the outskirts we stopped for a coffee and I was actually cold!!
The owner of the Family Tuna restaurant have is the coffee for nothing, which was very generous. I needed a snack so I bought a donut, one of the few recognisable items on sale. It turned out to be a chicken curry donut (as opposed to jam!). Strange, but quite tasty all the same.
