the story cafe

There is an amazing ancient cafe in Seoul, Korea, called Insadong Stories. You can have tea/coffee and write a story, or draw a picture, which is then pinned to the wall. We added a Simply Read picture (which you can see above). Most of stories concern matters of the heart. Most are happy, but some have a melancholic tinge to them such as:
"I came here Friday to Insadong Stories and he passed me his mind and heart. I passed him mine. Maybe next time..."
I wish there were more cafes like this.
