I'm going to describe some sugar mamas today. These ladies sell caramelized sugar that has been molded into fun shapes. Sugar is melted down in a small tin cup with flames provided by butane bottles. People will buy these random shapes for roughly 1000w ($1USD) each. You will find these ladies (and sometimes men) in Myeongdong and other busy shopping districts, such as Insadong. Now that's what you call profit...selling melted sugar for a buck!
Here's a spy shot from inside one of the many stores in Myeongdong. You must visit this area if you're coming to Seoul. There are lots of stores to check out, but make sure you go early to avoid the crowds (which is almost impossible but we did it!).
One more picture of another sugar mama...I wonder if she has a sugar daddy?
I mentioned how cars were allowed to drive on these narrow streets earlier. It is crazy how these drivers think they're going to get anywhere quickly. It's just an accident waiting to happen trying to avoid the throngs of people:
You have to be careful at times because some of these drivers just creep up on you. Some drivers of small delivery trucks are crazy so you should always watch your back!
