Amy's first official day in Korea!

I still can't believe my sister is here!   I woke up this morning, rolled over in my bed, and there she was, ready to greet me with a "Good morning sister!"  I couldn't help but laugh, thinking this may, quite possibly be, the very first time she's woken up before me!  It's so fun to have her around!   We all lounged around the apartment for a while and then decided to get out and have some brunch... but in Korea, brunch doesn't really exist unless you go to an American style restaurant... So, we went to Breeze Burns (an American burger joint)!  

Outside my apartment building on our way to the subway.

Amy was really excited to see the "Gambling Shack" in person!  Unfortunately, there were no old korean men gambling at 10 o'clock in the morning!  Regardless, a picture was in order! :)

I was embarrassed that the first restaurant meal we ate was comprised of: eggs, toast, bacon, hashbrowns, and a waffle, but such is life!  We'll eat Korean food the rest of the week!

I was pushing my tummy out, trying to show how full I was from the gynormous breakfast... ended up looking more like I'm showing off a prego belly!!  I assure you all, there is NO BABY in there!

After breakfast, we walked through Nampodong and headed for Jagalchi, where Amy witnessed her very first Korean princess dog! 

The following are pictures that she took while we were out and about today!  I'll let you experience our day through her eyes!   

The Jagalchi Fish Market: 

After walking the VERY CROWDED fish market, we took a taxi over to check out Songdo Beach (the beach closest to my place!)   The sun was out in full affect this afternoon making for a gorgeous day!

After the beach, we taxi'd over to my Pharmacists to get some medicine for my sis.  I'm happy to report her coughing is much better tonight... I know you were all worried.  *** Thank goodness for Korean meds!

Then we made the trek back up the hill to my apartment; checking out the fruit stand on the way!  Amy was a total champ with my hill!  She's a New Yorker, so she's used to walking, which was great!

Amy was exhausted by this point (and understandably so from the jetlag) so, she took a nice long nap and woke up around 6:30pm to Aaron delivering pizza for dinner!

We're all staying in and lounging tonight so Amy can get rested up for her big day of acupuncture, massages, and walks along the beach tomorrow!   I only wish I had the day off to enjoy it all with her. :(
