baseball game in korea

On Saturday I spent the day with my new co-worker Alicia. In the morning we went to Myung jin orphanage where I have been volunteering at. I was so surprised there was only 5 kids there (the pre-school age children we work with) because the other children went home. We actually had more volunteers then we had children! We had a good time with the kids.
After lunch we went to Gyeongbokgung palace, which is the largest palace in Seoul. I actually went there in the fall with my friend Moonsoo but I missed the palace gate opening and closing ceremony and royal guard changing ceremony and also the national palace museum. This time I got to see them both. It was nice to go back because it’s a beautiful palace but it was very hot to walk around.
Then I showed her Itaewon which is where I buy my international phone cards. I was really glad we went because I needed another phone card and I also got my battery changed for my watch. I was glad to get a couple of unexpected errands done today! By the way if you ever come to Korea somethings are super cheap here compared to prices back home. Getting a new battery for my watch only cost me $3. If you want to make international phone calls. I have been using the card – Gahn and if you make a phone calls to Canada, on this card you get 380 minutes and it only costs $13 for the card (30 cents a minutes)!
Around 6:30pm we went to Jamsil Stadium to meet up with my small group for a baseball game. We saw LG Twins vs Doosan Bears. I couldn’t believe how cheap our tickets were ($4) and we bought supper at Burger King at the Stadium and they were normal prices (like they didn’t jack up the prices because it’s at a stadium).
We cheered for LG Twins but they lost 8-3. I don’t know if I was more interested in watching the game or the people who cheer. Back in Canada for me I find it boring to watch baseball games but here in Korea the crowd gets involved with cheering (noise makers, signs and even sparklers). They even have a stage for leading the crowd for leading the crowd in cheers. The LG Twins even had a Christmas in summer theme. A couple even got married at the game.  It was funny they handed us signs at the end of the game that said "nobody defeats LG" but they sure got beaten pretty bad. It was quite the show to watch the game!
