Jaedong Sundubu in Seoul

This is sort of a strange post but it emphasises why I dislike visiting a foreign country without being able to read and speak the local language. Anything using the Latin Alphabet (that is, ABC) I can cope with.


I know most countries will now have some signs in English. Internet-based translation tools are very helpful, as is sign language, smiling or sadly, in the case of very rich tourists, waving around lots of cash.
