Seoul

Long walk, beautiful day, lovely city, fast internet, many pics


Have never been in a city so well colored. Tried to go to a big green spot on my stuttering google maps thinking it a park and was turned away by the guard of the army base (American-run, I believe). Across from that huge compound the war memorial. Asked those soldiers for some directions. Until 2015 I think if South Korea had gone to war they’d have been commanded by USA. Seoul is hilly and therefore beautiful. Is that too strong a causal link? Last two shots of Gangnam, the wealthy district across the river satirized in the song. Seoul is cheap and friendly. Walked through a largely middle eastern neighborhood on a ridge. Found a tiny gay bookshop. And here’s one more church, from last night.

  1. seoul looks beautiful. muted palette. hills do make things different. reminds me of san francisco everything looks new, slightly used. i wonder what the gay bookstore was like.

    i wonder what you’re up to this evening-bar? karaoke? night swimming? I’m about to go to the dentist, and then off to the oral surgeon. will try to remain cordial with sexy oral surgeon. it is a clear day, and cool..

    the cat just ran under the bed so gotta get him out before leaving for appointments.

    looks like seoul has been good so far, wish i was there.

  2. South Korea has a lot of Christianity, that often continues if/when Koreans move to the USA. I don’t know the history – missionaries? And so much military. Had no idea, because, too focused on K-pop;).
