|Look at this sculpture! Koreans love sculptures. They're everywhere...and so random!|

While we were there, I stumbled upon a wig store, and did a happy dance. Having alopecia in South Korea is no walk in the park. For starters, women with hair loss here don't talk about it openly. It, like most everything else, is taboo, and so it's not like I can walk into a wig store in my little home city of Songdo and walk out with some lovely Jon Renau wigs to tide me over. And sadly, hair loss (for me) represents a loss of control, and I like having lots of wigs in lots of styles and colors, so that I can change them with my moods. This gives me back some of that "control" I feel like I've lost. But alas...no wig stores in South Korea. Or, not many, that is.
Occasionally, I don't feel like such an outsider here in South Korea. :)
Oh, I almost forgot to mention: we got some baklava! Itaewon is a great neighborhood for scoring international food... i.e. NOT Korean food. Barf. This place is crawling with taco joints, burger joints, and Turkish food. Which, is one of my favorites. The baklava is tremendous. And everywhere! I was in heaven. Because....well...baklava.
|I like my new wig a lot. Whatcha think?|
All in all, it was a good day outside in the sunshine. What did you do this weekend, reader and writer friends?
