On Sunday March 23rd 2014 I was lucky enough to meet up with my brother Chris’ friend from Ontario, Rob Taylor to go tour around Dongdaemun and hit up the unbelievable Gwangjang Market among other places. You may have noticed I already posted about this market and the wonderfully delicious Korean pancakes they serve there (if not check out “Gyeongbokgung” post).
I met Rob early in the AM on Sunday at the “Dongdaemun History & Culture” subway station. This station brings you right into a little area known to me as “Russia Town”. The reason I refer to it as “Russia Town” is because for a moment it felt like I was in another country. If any of you have ever been to a “China Town”, think of that, but only Russia.
