It really is a place of contrasts. On one hand, you have an ancient palace, then on the other, you have modern day downtown Seoul. It was a pretty place and if you want to see all my myriad of pictures, you can check the link that I'll put up in the sidebar to the flickr page.
When we were done looking around the palace, we were greeted with a nice anti-USA beef protest:
For those of you who have no idea what this is about, just google it and you'll see. So, DF and I figure this is probably not the best place to be since we're Americans, so we scoot our way out of this while telling the people who ask that we're from another country other than America (Yeah, I hate to lie, but we really didn't want to get caught up in this protest, especially since here recently they have started turning more violent). We did buy T-shirts though that they were selling at the protest just so that we would have a souvenier of sorts.
On Sunday, we went to another palace, this one much bigger:They even had costumes you could put on. DF was trying to look all serious there and I didn't realize I should have been too :oP
I also promised you pictures of the sock in progress. Well, it's not in progress anymore since I finished it this afternoon:
These are for our Korean co-teacher. I hate this yarn still, but I'm glad she has small feet. These have to be the smallest pair of socks I have ever made.
