Before you got to the tanks, you had to wash your feet off in this little foot shower. Then you picked at seat at one of the tanks. We ended up in the tank with the smaller fish by some random chance.
One ot two tanks with seat cushions.
The fishies were definitely ready to eat. They were swimming around with their mouths open at even a HINT of feet. If fish could salivate, I think these were doing it.

The "big fish" tank with Angie, Brigid, Noyoun, and Tom.
The fish were definitely an interesting feeling as they nibbled on your feet. Some people with really ticklish feet did not handle it too well and had to keep taking their feet out (ahem, ahem, Natasha and Sal).
Sal could not handle it. Hence the face.
Here is a little video to show you how thins went down:Fish Feet from Meaghan Shanahan on Vimeo.
The stadium is on the same complex as the Olympic Stadium where the opening and closing ceremonies were held for the Seoul Olympics. This is the outside of the baseball stadium.
The packed stadium.
Good thing we didn't need to get up and down the steps too quickly for anything, as there were bodies all over them!
Brigid and Laura (the obvious Cubs fans from Chicago) and I at the game.
Enjoying the sun.
Overall the game was (as) decent (as a baseball game can be), even though the Doosan Bears (home team) lost to the Giants by one point/run/whatever they call it. After the game, we went back over to Gangnam to chill at a restaurant and have some drinks (mmm, pomegranate flavored soju is delicious...). The menu at this restaurant was absolutely ABSURD.
Gigantic and overwhelmed with pictures. As Laura said "as a graphic designer, this is my WORST NIGHTMARE!"
