... are identical bar the logos. We ate a load of good street food too; the cold weather was offset by all the stalls selling BBQ squid and chicken skewers and chocolate dipped strawberries.
So that concludes days one and two. We then went home to watch a Korean TV show which follows celebrity dads and their kids. I love Korean TV shows, with or without subtitles. They are full of little animations and fun sound effects. Brilliant.
... going out to the DMZ but there are three options to do this. Option A/B) take a tour to the DMZ with a tour company. There are two tours available.

Hoping to get used to it here soon; it feels like I’m lagging behind most people with regard to adaptation.
