Seoul is the greatest city in the world

Well, we're into our third week in Seoul now. The longer we live here, the longer we are convinced that everyone and their dog should live in Seoul, South Korea. Jamie and I did some amazing things this weekend (don't take this comment the wrong way now..). We explored the Hanok Folk Village: a complete replication of kings and queens' homes as well as some amazing history.

Then we went to Seoul tower. We took a cable car (similar to the tram on Grouss Mountain except a hundred times cheaper) up the mountain. At the top of the mountain you can see a 360 degree view of the city. Pretty amazing.

Then we saw an English movie at the Chungmora theater: The island. Finally something we could understand. Sometimes it gets really frustrating to not understand what's going on, because of the language barriere. This especially sucks when you get lost. For those of you who know Jamie and I well, you know we get lost ALL THE TIME.

Today after church we went to this really amazing lake in the North West edge of the city. It reminded me of being at Stanley Park or somewhere in Vancouver. So this is it for now. i will post more pictures after our boat ride on the Han river and outdoor synphony concert on the lawn on the lawn of city hall (free concert).
