1 Dec -- Weekend in Seoul

We spent the weekend in Seoul and had a good time. We stayed at the Dragin Hill Lodge we rode around on the Seoul City Tour bus. It was a great deal. 10,000 won ($7.15) to ride the bus all day long. While in Seoul we went to the Seoul Tower, Itaewon Shopping District, Dongdaemun Market, CheongWaDae (the Korean President's House), and Gyeongbokgung Palace.
I have the rest of the week off and we hope to make a trip to see some of the Buddha's on the mountain sides.

That is CheongWaDae, or the Blue House--the Korean President's house.

This is the playground at the Dragon Hill Lodge. It was real nice.

There were a ton of locks attached to each other and then the fence. Most had a name and a date etched or written on them. It is said the people put them there to remember their trip to Seoul Tower.

You can see more locks in this picture.
