We were afraid that we would end up sleeping half of the day away because of the time difference, but without setting an alarm we still managed to wake up around 10:00 a.m (thanks hostel roomies who were loud while packing up 😾).
We were pretty hungry and desprately needed coffee… What do people eat for breakfast here? We eventually chose a place out of pure desperation and of course we picked the one place that only served fish in everything that they had. Did I mention I don’t like fish? Well… Sometimes it’s O.K., but definitely not for breakfast! Needless to say I ate the rice that was under the fish (I tried the fish just in case, but it was what I expected- fishy). Afterwards we washed it down with some coffee from Starbucks (savior).
As we walked along the different curving pathways there were signs pointing towards different attractions in the garden. My favorite part about gardens are the flowers (one allergy I can ignore for the time being).
We eventually made our way back into the city in search for the Imperial Palace. There were major streets blocked off for pedestrian walk ways. Major fashion brands lined the streets and the smells of local restaurants cooking blew through the air.
After an amazing night out with outrageously good food we took the subway back to our hostel. And now I’m writing this post… Here’s two videos from earlier today and then when I turned the camera sideways for better quality at night 😉
(I’ll work on my video skills for the rest of the trip :p)
