Day 2

A beautiful Seoul sunset
A beautiful Seoul sunset
By the time we arrived in Korea we had crossed the International Dateline and it was Tuesday evening. It was crazy to think that a whole day and a half had passed while we had been in the air. After landing and having our temperature taken by the health reception committee (customs), we met our tour guide, a Korean man with a good sense of humor, Ben. As we rode the bus to the hotel in Seoul we learned that of the 50 million people that live in Korea more than one fifth of them live in Seoul. After getting situated in the hotel, we took to the local streets and admired the people and their little shops. It was fun and felt surprisingly similar to walking through Tijuana, Mexico. Though I didn’t buy anything except a huge bottle of water it was still fun to go out and mingle with the locals. It didn’t take too long before the extremely long day caught up with us and we decided to turn back and go to bed.
