Best Bites–by J.J.
When we first arrived in Itaewon, we ate at Taco Bell. It was our first time to eat Mexican food. We tasted a variety pack of burritos, nachos, and tacos.
“The most delicious thing at Taco Bell was the potato burrito,” Laura said.
In a burrito there is usually meat (chicken or beef), cheese, beans and sometimes sour cream wrapped in a soft flat bread called a flour tortilla.
Next, we went to an international store where Alicia bought an American candy called Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. She also bought some jellies. Jenny said she liked the peanut butter in the chocolate, but overall it was too salty.
Also, we ate ice cream at Baskin Robbins. Gi-eun said, “I want to eat churros again at Namsan Tower.”
Most of the classmates want to eat tacos and burritos again when they go back to Itaewon.
Itaewon Culture–by Jenny
The culture in Itaewon was as fresh as a hot baked churas!
It was my first academy field trip to Itaewon. It was one of the most interesting cities I had ever been too. I saw many unique and odd people there. For example, I saw an African man wearing a green suit, an Asian man wearing an orange coat with green pants, and a beggar who had no legs.
I expected to see an “international street of my hope.” Ahh… I must say that my “hope” [before going] was that Itaewon would be better than the Chinese International Street. After I got there, I understood why the books always say, “Don’t get your dreams too high.” It was smelly and not clean.
Overall, I hope I can go there again sometime with my friends.
So Many Stores! by Gi-eun
A Tall, Tall Tower–by Laura
Have you ever seen Namsan Tower? If you go to Seoul, I recommend going to Namsan Tower. There are beautiful views, stores, foods and services.
To go there, you can take exclusive buses. When you arrive, you will find many shops. In one shop, you can buy a personalized lock and afterwards put it on the surrounding fences. You can add a personal message with your wishes on it.
Namsan Tower is so beautiful at night. You can see wonderful night views of Seoul.
