Journal Entry: 6/6/09

Our last breakfast at Dongju was joined by Mr. Shin to say goodbye. We are heading to South Korea’s capital: Seoul. It is the largest city in the country and one of the largest in the world with a population of ten million.

Wooseob told us to lower our expectations on this new hotel we’re staying at: Metro Hotel. Its in Myongdong, pretty much the heart of Seoul. We each got our own rooms with twin beds; Dongju had full sized beds.

Wooseob took us to lunch and then we headed to the Seoul Museum of History. We joined four parents and their four kids and hung out with them at the museum, then through Insadong shopping area, then to dinner, the riverwalk, and dessert at Krispy Kreme.

Insadong is a large, busy, busy, busy shopping area. I found some shirts and some incense that I liked. There were so many people there and too many foreigners. That was sort of disappointing after being a minority so long in Busan.
