    This afternoon, I paid visits to Yeongcheon Market in Saedaemun-gu and then Tongin Market. A high school senior was there to meet me. He knew that I would be in Tongin Market by seeing my Facebook status. I gave him my autograph with pleasure. I also talked to a group of senior citizens playing janggi (Korean chess) in a corner of the market. And there was one more thing I had to do. No visit to a traditional market can be complete without eating some delicious, yet inexpensive food.

    My next destination is Gwangjang Market.
