Seoul instantly feels more westernized than Japan, from the visual branding on the signs to the way people move around in public. But also: street food. A rare sight in Japan, where eating and walking is generally Not Done, with the noticeable exception of rice balls on sticks. But street food in Seoul is seemingly endless. There were massive line-ups for these vaguely phallic ice-creams (not especially nice, but the line-up snakes through shelves of vintage toys; hence Astro Boy). The road side take-out cocktails-in-a-bag were lethally strong, and also not especially nice. But, hey: cocktails in a bag.
