We leave Seoul tomorrow - we've had a great time, but it's time to move on and do something else.
And while we've been busy with laundry and packing and downsizing as usual, we fit in a palace visit, and found a great artist!

The French Impressionist museum, Musée d'Orsay, has a special exhibit in Seoul, and that's where I spent my afternoon. It was lovely, especially since it turned into a HOT day (100 or so F, 35 C) - and staying indoors was a better option that r... Read more
I finally had my bingsu! Sort of good, sort of weird, and hard to explain.
And no, I didn't eat the whole thing.
But hey, part of travel includes trying new foods, and today it was the bingsu.

We are having our continuing funny adventures all over Seoul - we have our passports, I was told I was eating my sulgogi all wrong, and we've gotten used to the rainy season. Except one toe, which continues to protest. (I'm still managing 3 to... Read more
We're enjoying Seoul so much, we think we're going to stay here a bit longer. (And the prices of rental cars are insane. We could take the train around, but, well, we found so much more to do in this area.)
So, more Seoul.

There's this semi-hidden stream that runs below street level through the middle of Seoul - it makes a lovely long park, and a great place to walk around on a nice day.

We're having fun in our new neighbourhood - random sculpture scattered around, lots of cafés and restaurants, some gardens, and just lots to see and explore.

as well as the US Embassy, and the War Memorial, and walked 14,600+ steps - that's about 7 miles for the day.
So the fried pork and vegs in a honey sauce for lunch was hopefully burned up. (It truly was about the only thing they served in ... Read more
I swear, my toe bandage makes it look like my toe is flipping off everyone! Too funny!
Not much exciting, but still enjoying Seoul. Weather has been delightful the past few days, definitely summer without being horrendously hot.

We're having fun in Seoul, and have finally managed the subway system, despite the lack of reading a word of Korean.
