First impressions of Seoul

Everything is clean

Koreans like bright colors for clothes and signs.  

Masses of high-rise buildings backed by green hills.

No garbage cans on the street, but 5 different garbages at home

Everyone in twos (girls, boys, couples, couples dressed identically) and often linked arms or touching.

Koreans LOVE children.  And when I say love, I mean every place we went people: talked to, touched or gave things to our friends' 2-year-old.

Very kind people turn into Dr Jekyll when in cars.

Immaculate toilets

Kimchi is served at EVERY meal.  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

The base of every main dish is garlic or hot pepper.

Dessert is separate.  No restaurant we went to served dessert.  But the entire city was covered with coffee houses with syrupy sweet coffee or tea, and desserts.

Koreans are professionally dressed hikers.  All of them.

No one actually knows the lyrics to any song.  Especially the kareoke video subtitlers.

Korean girls never show anything above the waist but they sure like SHORT shorts.

There is no 4th floor. 

3 of me, but no 4th floor.
