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.
