this was once a pizzeria

I hadn't visited my old stomping grounds next to the Cheongshil building in a while, but I was there yesterday to visit the post office and mail off a package. Curious, I went around back to take a look at a pizzeria I used to frequent. It had been a few years, and I had a bad feeling that I wouldn't like what I found. Sure enough:

The pizzeria is gone, and in its place is some sort of fruit seller. Ah, well. Shops and restaurants appear and disappear all the time in Seoul. I wonder what became of the two young guys who ran the pizzeria. Both of them had lived in New York, and one of them spoke pretty fluent English. Maybe they opened up a pizza joint elsewhere, perhaps outside of Seoul.
