It has been so long since I've written anything. I'm so sorry! Prepare for an onslaught of blog entries as I attempt to catch up on showing you all of the places I've gone! One unique place in particular is a chain café called Zoo Coffee. What do you guys think the theme is? Yep, Circus, you guessed it.
My sarcasm aside, this café is entirely covered in animal prints and full of stuffed tigers, monkeys, lions, etc. They have waffles, ice cream, as well as your standard coffee drinks. The staff is also extremely friendly (and attractive if you go to the Hongdae branch ^^). They have wifi, but the bathroom is password protected and threw me off for a good 10 minutes when I was trying to get inside. Can you picture how confused I was? You can find Zoo coffee by taking an immediate left outside of exit 9 of Hongdae Station. It's about a 2 minute walk! I have been there twice now. The first time I went with a friend and ordered a green tea frappé. My friend ordered dark chocolate ice cream and a tea. The second time I went was with about 5 or 6 friends and I ordered a waffle that was delicious but unfortunately not warm. -_- There were chocolate, almonds, syrup, ice cream and whipped cream on top, and it cost maybe 9,000KRW. It was also the size of two of my faces. I didn't take a picture because we were there late at night and it was dark.
This is great because it's summer and the weather is getting grosser and grosser -_- but they have a huge open patio you can sit on and they open all the huge windows so it feels like you're outside even if you're inside.
Again, I'm so sorry for the late post. I have about 10 days left of school and about 40 left in Asia. Time is just flying by! See you next time, which will probably be in about half an hour since I have so much more to write about!
