This Week in Pictures

Hello, friends and family. I apologize for the sporadicity of my posts. This past week has been insane. Long nights, new friends, and lots of class have kept me busy. I haven’t had my camera out as much as I would have liked, but I have snapped a few photos of some of the more prominent sites I have visited. Here is a quick recap of the past few days of travel here in Seoul.

 

The walk up Nam Mountain in the center of Seoul took us about an hour from the base. It was a perfect day for a hike.

At the top of the mountain is a wonderfully touristy area complete with Cold Stone ice cream. Like I haven’t even left.

The view from the top of Namsan Tower. The ride up was horridly cheesy and was clearly meant for couples, but we two homeboys made the most of it.

Although I am thoroughly enjoying my travels, I can’t help but feel a bit of nostalgia when I see a reference to home, even if it’s 6,000 miles away.

When Koreans make a billboard, they really make a billboard.

A changing of the guard ceremony and some ancient buildings at Gyeongbuk Palace, a jewel of tradition in the heart of this futuristic city.

Out for a run through Hangangsimin Park on the Han River, taking advantage of this beautiful 20 degree day. Spring is in the air.

(yes, I’m switching to metric)
