We went out to Uirimji today to take some pictures and walk around a bit. It was so cold. I have no idea what the temperature was (we have no outdoor thermometer, we should get one), but we were popsicles. We stayed out there for under an hour when we called it quick because it was just too cold to enjoy ourselves. It was really pretty and it will only get prettier as winter gets more bitter. We'll have to brave the weather again when there's more snow on the ground.
First we walked around the back of the amusement park area. It was completely abandoned and creepy. Nothing was locked up, so we took full advantage of that and no one stopped us (not that there was anyone to stop us).
Fun in the abandoned park:
Lonely Christmas tree above a frozen pond. That's a little house on the pond in the lower right corner.
Ian's new friend/ battle suit.
There was a wood stove near the Tada Disco (the evil ride from hell). There were still some people in this part of the park.
So, we headed toward the back, where no one was around. No public or carnie workers.

Dead Tada Disco.
Nothing was locked up.

After playing around for a while we went over to the reservoir area:
It's starting to freeze.
We decided to go to Dunkin' since we were super frozen. This is our first real winter and (for me at least) it's going to be rough. I hate being cold.
I got a "Scorched Rice" donut. It was a rice gluten donut covered in peanut frosting and what appears to be bird seed. It was pretty good. It tasted like a granola bar.

Welcome to Korea!
After warming up we went over to Lotte Mart to get some staples (read: Diet Coke).
So, it's not spelled right, but it's still Kimball's Chile Sauce. Come on.
It was a good day aside from being painfully cold. We're having Mexican for dinner (we're making veggie burritos with the tortillas we got yesterday), so we're stoked. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. We have a meeting with Julia at 10:30 tomorrow morning.
