Brief Encounter with Seoul

Nearly a week after I got back from Europe, I left again for Seoul on a 10 day mini trip. It was mostly for family stuff, so I didn't have a lot of time to wander around and do the normal things I would do on vacay.

A cafe chain in Seoul. Their macaroons suck.


Got these right before I left for Seoul. Thanks Solestruck! Everyone in Seoul stared at my feet.

A famous writer lived in my mom's hometown, and this was his house.

Probably the most important thing in a Korean house. This is where they ferment the kimchi, dwen-jang, etc.

Gwanghwamun at night. It's really amazing. This photo doesn't do it justice. That's King Se-jong, the father of the Korean language.
