Jake's visit to Seoul
Who doesn't love this city?
This past week Jamie and I have been busy being tour guides for my cousin, Jake, from Tacoma. It was a really fun week. We went to Lotte World on Sunday, Namsan/Meung-dong on Monday, Insadong and norebong (singing room) on Tuesday, Building 63 on Friday (even though we discovered the observation deck is closed until July), and Dondaemun/Chong-dok palace/Jogno tower/Chungechun stream on Saturday. The only reason for our sabatacle on Wednesday and Thursday was because Jake went to Gyenju for a couple days to see a tea plantation and to see a national park. Jake was a bit of a celebrity at our school on Friday when he came to observe some of our classes.
Here we are on Top Cloud restaurant (top floor of Jogno Tower), enjoying our delicious meal accompanied by a live jazz trio.
A beautiful pegotta in Jogno.

Wow, building 63 is quite something....
Jake suggested we take this picture as an April Fool's joke. he told everyone that Christine is his new fiance. As if!!

Jake and Jamie got along famously.
