Seoul City

Jordy fell asleep so we just held up his head!


Today we went on a tour of Seoul with a tour group. The base has all kinds of tours for only about 20 bucks. They provide transportation and a tour guide who actually speaks English! We went with Eric (friend from residency) and Robert (head honcho of the ER). Joe didn't sleep good last night, but did a good job of not complaining too much.

The first stop we went was the Seoul Tower. It is like the space needle in Seattle...kind of... At the top there is all kinds of locks all over the railing. Apparently they are what the teenagers put there to symbolize their love- and they throw the key over the side! There was also a big display of hearts with different designs on them. In the park surrounding the tower there was some guys practicing some sort of martial arts. It was pretty cool.

Next stop was some city street that had a lot of shopping. There was an Outback Steakhouse. We ate there, but it wasn't quite right.

Then we walked along this pretty waterway and arrived in some place with more shopping and roadside food places. There was actually a big pot of beatles and worms. It was quite disgusting. The tour guide said they are really good and salty. Uggggghhhh!

We went to the blue house (like the white house in the US, it is where the prez lives). It was the cleanest place we have seen in this country so far! It was a fun day- but we were pretty tired when we got back.

I can't believe your mobile little man lets you put him in the carrier still! I would have a battle of epic proportions on my hands if I tried to wrestle Nathan into one of those! Looks like you had a good time. I like the locks thing. That's really neat. Although, when I first read it (being mid-first-cup-of coffee) I thought it said clocks and couldn't figure out why Korean clocks had keys! :o)

Sounds like a nightmare in a way! I hope you guys are adjusting well! I think i would rather crawl than ride a bike like that in the heat!!!

That picture that you took with all of the locks is really really cool!!!
i can't wait to see more!

Love you guys!
I am working on getting a webcam, probably on a day off and then i can do the skyppe thing that dad raves about.

Love you!

Hi Kids,
Looks like you are having a great time over there. The pictures are great. The best one is where Joe has to hold up Jordys head for the shot.

Love the pics. I can't believe how big Jordan has got. :( And that key place is really cool...saw it on the Amazing Race once. And about the Outback in Korea...come on, were you really shocked that it tasted a bit off? lol
Miss you guys.
