The second day was fun too! We explored some parts of Seoul.We we woke up early to go to the museum. It was an art museum. We got our tickets and then went into the 'Modern Korean Art' Section. There was some pretty weird art in it. But I learned about some artist and how to figure out what the message is that the artist wants to tell us in his or hers art. Most of them were sculptures. I liked a couple of them and the messages were really clear sometimes. There was one with a whole wall with shelves in it and on all of those million shelves were pills. Millions and millions of pills. The shelves were mirrors and each pill was a different one. I saw a couple of doubles, but you wouldn't believe how much there was. I think the message was saying that there are lots of pills on our planet, but maybe not. I saw a guitar, a guitar that had everything on it twice. So it was a double guitar. That was also the name. I also saw a sculpture of the person who discovered video art. It was a sculpture with little TVs in a tower. All the TVs were showing the same and they all moved and did everything the same time. It was amazing. I also saw a piano stuck to a golden colored piece of paper. Which confused me. I couldn't find the message for that one. The art was very interesting. And I saw some art that I have seen before in HK.

When that was over, we all went downstairs. Where there was art you would use in movies. And I saw a back round that was painted on. It was really big. It was the back round of a grass field. And there were some houses painted on it too. Then they used a big piece of paper and sprayed some dirt and mud and grass on it. They put on fake grass. Then close up there was a part of a tree with a stick holding it up. Go here to see the picture And in front of all of that, there was a camera. You don't see the stick on the camera. And everything was so much more real looking on the camera. There were lights on the scene too. But you couldn't see that either. It was really cool! Then there were some computers for some reason. But we didn't use them. And all the way at the end of the room was a little table with pictures of vases on it. And plastic that you could draw on. You had to trace the picture on the plastic and use a different step on each piece of plastic. Then you would put them all together in a special frame, and your vase would look 3D! It was fun. But mine didn't turn out to good. So I just brought a piece of plastic home and I am hoping to finish mine better. Them just put it together in some frame that is similar to the other one and I will also get that cool 3D look. After wards we went to the gift shop. My mom bought a special book about art and for the rest we didn't get anything.
We went home after that and my dad and sister and I went to get some pizza downstairs. Int he pizza place. The pizza is really good there and we didn't have much time left after that anyway. We were late to see the special show 'Cooking Nanta' So when we got back to the hotel room, we ate all the pizza really fast and ran downstairs to grab a taxi. When we got to the place, we were at the wrong place. So then we had to walk all the way to the RIGHT place, and sit down to enjoy the show, Cooking Nanta.First I thought it was going tot be a show where people teach you how to cook things. But it was actually a play about three cooks who love to play music with their cooking supplies.
Two boys and one girl. The girl was called 'Female. They didn't use names or anything. They just talked a teensie weensie bit of gibberish and for the rest they didn't talk at all. One of the guys was the head chef. His name was, Head chef. Then the last guy was called, Sexy guy. The boss of all of them was called, Boss. He had a nephew who had to help out with the other chefs, but he knew nothing at all. The boss was very proud of him and he loved him. But all the other chefs treated him like he was the clean up boy. They gave him the clean up boy hat. And they start doing these really cool tricks with the food and stuff. Like doing magic tricks with the food. I had so much fun watching them! They had to prepare all the food for a wedding day. My dad had to go on stage and they dressed him up in a Chinese costume. Then another lady that we didn't know had to go on stage too. They had to try some food that they made. They made the food in really cool ways live on stage. Then some other stuff happened. And more and more that I can't describe but I just wish you could of seen it!

THIS is a link to the website. Maybe you can get tickets when they come to HK! Or another place. There are different people every time. A couple seconds later, my sister had to go on stage and play a game where you have to make dumplings. There was team red and team blue. My sister was team red. Another person had to go on stage too for the other team. And another for each. My sister's team lost. :( But it was really funny to watch. At the end of the performance, a big picture of my dad on stage and the other lady was on the wall behind the stage, I then realized that my dad just got married to a lady he didn't even know. It was weird, funny. And they had a big wedding party at the end. But my dad or the lady were not in it. All the cooks played on drums and stuff. The two cooks, Sexy guy and the nephew, got a long at the end too. They were fighting in the play because they both liked female. After the play we went to get some Dunkin'Donuts for breakfast the next day and then we went to bed when we got back to the hotel room. I liked that day. It was really fun. Please come to my website again, to read my next post about my days in Seoul, Korea!

These are some of the pictures that I described in the second paragraph. The bottom one is the backround that they use in movies and the top pictures are poeple making those vases.
