Days two and three of our trip were spent at the Seoul Zoo and the Demilitarized Zone with North Korea.
The Seoul Zoo was about a forty five minute ride on the subway, and it is an absolute spectacular spot for a zoo. It's very hilly but beautiful. I didn't take many pictures of the animals because the landscape was so incredible.
Our first stop on our tour was Imjingak (Nuri Peace Park).
Finally, we went to the border!

Considering how amazing Seoul is, it's surprising that it's taken me this long to blog about our visit, but, it's Thanksgiving week and we're busy. Seoul is an amazing city, pretty you could say, reminded me of San Fransisco a bit with its hills. Seoul is usually more temperate than here in Misawa but the week we chose to go it was colder than here. It was high 40s to low 50s pretty much the entire time but the fall colors I think we're at their peak, so not a bad week considering.

Seriously November, slow down! I can't believe we're almost into Christmas season already. We've been out of town the last week visiting Seoul on vacation, and I have lots and lots of photos to share but before, I needed to post something I should have a while ago that is so important.

One of the things they do here in Japan that I definitely didn't want to do is the salmon catch. Humungous pools are filled with salmon and then you're let loose in the pool to try and catch a salmon with your hands. We were going to go to the Hirosaki Chrysanthemum Festival again but last minute we decided to give the salmon catch a try.
