A Day in Seoul

Main Entrance of Changdeok Palace

Our little group took a bus tour of Seoul today.  The fare was a princely sum of 10,000 won per person - about ten dollars.  We got off the bus at Changdeok Palace and toured the beautiful grounds - probably a hundred or so acres in the center of Seoul.  From there we walked to the Insadong shopping district and walked about a mile along the historic shopping district.  I bought some brass wind chimes  for my kids and a collection of Korean postage stamps for Boone.  We also had lunch at an Indian place.  The meal was very unimpressive.

The people of Seoul were all calm - no indications that they have any concerns regarding Kim Jong Il's recent bad behavior.
