Gangnam Style Exhausted

Yesterday, I awoke early after a night of drinking and a few hours of sleep. i wasn't up for museums and other attractions, so i, went to the Gangnam part of town, which involved a ride on the metro through 15 stations, which seemed like it was 45 minutes. i heard that there wasn't much to the Gangnam part of town, which I found was true. It is many upscale stores, hotels and restaurants. I did find a monument to the song "Gangnam Style", though, after getting off on the subway. Not sure what to do then, i walked around past stores playing blaring music, inviting me to come in and be cool for about 5 seconds while I listened to their music and looked around. Then I got on a bus to the Hyundai Department Store (not sure what was there-but i figured what I would see). I never found the Hyundai Department Store, but stayed on the bus until the end of the route, where i found a Canon store, and looked around.


Fortunately, the metro was there, and my lack of sleep was catching up with me. So i got back on the metro (this time, it was 17 stops back). The metro was standing room only. After roughly 13 stops, I couldn't stand any more. I saw a bench in one of the stations we stopped at, so i got off the train and sat on the bench and took a nap-for about 15 minutes (i think)-and went back to the hostel and slept for a few hours.

i had a second wind in the evening-so i took a few other metros to the Seoul Tower-which is a radio tower. I got off the metro, stopped at a bar and had a beer, and walked up the hill. it was getting cold out. I went to the tower, and found a huge crowd of tourists, but it was nice. i stayed there and walked around for a while.
