Today I meet up with Tobias (a Korean adoptee from Denmark) who I had been corresponding with through Facebook before I arrived here.
We meet in Hongdae since that is where Tobias lives and the area is full of life and small upcoming designer stores.
We started at a cafe getting to know each other and then we went on to have lunch. I got my first mandu soup and it is not going to be the last time I find a place that makes that dish.
But now to the highlight of the day;
Tom’s cat cafe!!!
Cats are just everywhere
A cafe filled with all sorts of cats. It was amazing. Tobias was not exactly thrilled in the beginning but I think he warmed up and had a good time!
When you arrive at the cafe you need to leave your shoes and borrow a pair of slippers to wear. Then you get a big white plastic bag for your jackets and bags just in case some of the kittens are leaky.
There is no entrance fee but the drinks are a bit more expensive than at a regular cafe.
You get a table and then you are told not to disturb cats who are wearing a blue scarf since they can be a bit aggressive. You are not allowed to touch the kittens in a cage either but you can play with and pet the rest of the cats.
Here are some mood pictures from our visit:
Anyway just as a warning to all of you who do not want to look at cats just avoid any other posts named something with cat cause there are a few other cat cafes and dog cafes in Seoul and my mission is to visit them all!
