    This time around, I have paid visits to traditional markets, such as Namguro, Sinyeong, Nambu in Gangseo-gu, Mok 3-dong in Yangcheon-gu, Yeongcheon in Seodaemun-gu, Tongin, and Gwangjang.

    My final destination for the traditional market tour was Gyeongdong Market in Dongdaemun-gu.

    At Tongin Market, I met a high school senior. He said that he was waiting for me, knowing that I would be at Tongin Market by checking my Facebook status. I gave him my autograph. I also happened to see a couple of senior citizens playing janggi (Korean Chess) in a corner of the market and talked to them. I tried some food and bought several items by haggling. I had a really enjoyable time. Happy Chuseok, everyone!
