Yesterday, I woke up late and went to eat jajangmyun. After that, I bought some kebab from the Iraqi guy. He wanted to see my phone again, and he kept bothering me. He wouldn't let me leave. I finally escaped from him. Then I went in search of hotels to stay in. I though I saw the New Korea Hotel in the distance, but it turned out to be the New Oriental Hotel=( I went to an underground shopping mall and talked to two middle aged men, both of whom spoke English very well, for about an hour. We spoken in English and Korean. One of them wouldn't leave me alone, and he kept bothering me about hotels. He called his friend and asked him to help me find a place to live. They both tried to convince me to stay at cheap, shitty places. I tried to escape from him, but, unfortunately, we were walking in the same direction. I finally lost him, and came across two middle school girls in a church playground. I asked them where the hotels were, and they went with me because they wanted to be nice, I guess. However, it must have looked awfully weird and bad when the people on the streets saw me walking in and out of hotels, saying to these girls "Too expensive!", in Korean, at 10 PM. I really wasn't thinking very well at that time. I thanked the young girls and said goodbye to them, and then ran in to the same damned annoying guy who tried to convince me to stay in cheap, shitty places. I had told him I was going home an hour before haha. I escaped from him again, and then I got lost, and finally made my way back to the youth hostel. I told Seong-In about my story. I barely got any sleep last night. Terrible, terrible, terrible.
