The City that Survives

America is my country, but #Seoul is my hometown.  There is something so soothing to me about this city, with the topsy-turvy combination of new & sleek contrasted with old & meandering.  The moment I see my river begin to rise in the bus windows, my soul relaxes and I know it’s all ok.  To stand, looking out over a city as old as time.  Knowing that for centuries, one nation after another (often repeatedly) tried to stamp out its #culture and #Heritage only for Seoul to stay standing.  It’s a Beautiful feeling – Here for 14 days!

MBC Filming Crew

Cool! Was walking through Seoul yesterday when we passed by the MBC offices near Yeouido Station. Got a chance to see a filming crew in action! Never seen one before, so it was amazing 🙂 He was in handcuffs and was running to jump in a car. Escape! 😛

Ski Lift

If you walked up the mountain as part of viewing the zoo, you had the option to ride the ski lift back down. It is actually a fairly long ride (15 minutes?) and you go up and over all the little peaks. Right overtop of the lions and bears!
