East Meets West

First sighting of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in Korea! I looked online and there's actually a pretty large number of Krispy Kreme stores in Seoul.

Not surprising at all is that there are Starbucks in Seoul. What was surprising to me was the sticker shock. If you click on the picture above, you can see the full version and read the prices. An example is a tall Americano costs 2,800W (approx. $2.98USD, and it only costs $1.90USD at the Starbucks in Tech Square in Atlanta). The worst one is the Grande Java Chip Frappuccino which weighs in at 6,400W or $6.82USD). I don't think I'll be visiting Starbucks anytime soon.
