I ventured into Seoul to pick up a book, purchased through the infamous Craig’s List. I ended the afternoon with two new friends and some beautiful photographs of the old fortress wall that stretches between the two gates in Dongdaemun (동대문) and Hyehwa (혜화). Naksan Park is the name of the green area and pathways around the stone wall, and while the greenery is great, the older, more traditional houses you can take a peek at are just as interesting for the eyes. The sweeping views of the Seoul metropolis don’t hurt either. Thanks to my new friend for pointing me in its direction, because the historic walk to Dongdaemun was a beautiful way to spend the rest of my afternoon before a long ride home.
