The Rest of Seoul

We did a lot of walking around Seoul; there is plenty of shopping and restaurants. Korean food is pretty tasty but we all jumped at the chance to eat at California Pizza Kitchen.
One of our days we rode the subway an hour to a place called Lotte World. Lotte World is a blatant ripoff of Disneyland!
One of the good things about Lotte World is a good part of it is inside. So, it was a welcome sight for us that we didn't have to freeze outside all day.

The next day we were fortunate to be able to go to the Seoul Temple. I can't say how happy the temple makes me! It's a feeling without equal, and we're blessed to be able to attend in another country. It was a cold, but beautiful morning and a highlight of our trip!
After the temple we went to one of the main palaces in Seoul. It's called Gyeongbokgung, and it's also the largest. It's amazing! I'm so glad Dan likes to see this boring stuff as much as I do! We left the kids back at the hotel with some friends so we wouldn't hear pleas to leave every 10 minutes.
Lastly we went to a lantern festival that happened to be going on while we were there.
Seoul is a very great place to visit and we'd love to go back sometime...too bad there are a lot of other places we want to visit in our short time left here.
