Walking around Namsan
Today was gray and hazy, but not too cold. A good day for a walk. I met a friend at Dongdae Ipgu station and we took the bus up to the top of Namsan, the mountain park in the middle of Seoul. I think the last time I was there was on my first trip to Korea, over 7 years ago.

Looking down from Namsan onto the Myeongdong district. We walked down into Myeongdong from here, had coffee, and watched the swarms of tourists.
