Today was a day of seeing Seoul: Gemma went shopping along the streets of Insadong in the morning and explored further with her parents in the afternoon; Ed went to see the brand new and absolutely massive National History Museum for a bit of culture, and was very impressed. In the evening we got lucky with a restaurant table overlooking the river from which to watch the ‘Lighted Boat Parade’ which was a part of Seoul’s week-long festivities. They were duly impressive too, although we couldn’t make out the much-vaunted boat called ‘Titanic’, and hoped it hadn’t been cursed by its name.
On the way home we heard all sorts of strange noises coming from what seemed to be a nondescript mini-carpark. Closer inspection revealed it to be a baseball ‘alley’, or range, or whatever you call it. So obviously we had a go at hitting (more like glancing) the baseballs that machines pitch at us. It was absolutely brilliant fun and something we will be importing to the UK when we get back, so don’t go stealing our idea.
Oh and we have been away for 300 days now... see you in 65!
