Saturday, August 24th

The summer heat is slowly dying and Saturday explorations are becoming viable again.  Jihye and I have plans for the evening, but lunch is a good start.

Sunday Afternoon in the Cafe SandPark

And no, it has nothing to do with Van Halen. Or Seurat's masterpiece, which you can see if you're in Chicago. Which I'm not. Though admittedly, both are cool and worth checking out.

A Visit to Tapgol Park

Across the street from where I work is a small city park. As with much of Jongno, it is often filled with the old, the homeless and the curious. It is a park filled with much history and while it might seem a tad dumpy, it's still a proud little park. Welcome to Tapgol Park.... Continue Reading →
