Arrived in Incheon, the port for Seoul. Another clear day with moderate temperatures.

Our first stop was lunch. Tour departure was 11:30 and they have to feed you on tours over 5 hours. It was a typical Korean celebration style lunch. Over 25 choices shared by groups of 4. I tried almost everything and something's I still don't know what they were. Didn't get sick so it must have been okay.

In Seoul, we stopped at the summer palace. It was destroyed by the Japanese and rebuilt over the last 150 years. Reportedly over 7700 rooms in many buildings over many acres.

Our next two stops were shopping breaks. The first was just a city street but the second was a typical market street. Lots of cheap things to buy and numerous eateries. Very colourful.

On the way back we needed to take a detour due to some political protests over the impeachment of the president. Not sure which side was protesting.

It's currently Sunday just after lunch. Skies are clear and no wind so the South China Sea is flat. Need a sweatshirt to be outside.

China is our next stop. Will there be usable internet to update
