Forgive the increasingly brief updates. I certainly am not doing justice to these wonderful places. But I find myself back in Seattle already and ever more complacent to sit on my rump. Compounding this would be my lack of photos or adventurous experiences due to my broken right foot. So again, my apologies to those seeking good info or stories on Seoul, or Japan which will come later. My foot is healing well, a successful knee surgery is also healing nicely, and I will finish strong with updates and pics from my final stretch of my RTW trip, visiting Mexico City and Miami atleast. (PS-if anyone knows any good body guards in Mexico City, please get in touch.)
Excuses aside, here are some great photos of Seoul, covered in snow. It snowed the first day I arrived and I was lucky enough to visit Deok Su Gung Palace. This palace and its grounds are a quiet refuge in the heart of the city. Blanketed in white the space became even quieter and an idealic setting for photographers who were out in small groups.

To my friends and family, a sincere thank you for taking time to check in. Your support and communication is very important to me and I look forward to hearing from you.
