We've had a great time in Seoul, and our final day (day 5) was no exception. We started off at a cool Seoul History Museum to see how this place changed from a sleepy little Capitol to a world city bigger than Chicago. Here are the boys posing as important (carried around) people at the turn of the last century:
What's most notable about this museum, though is the thing we missed knowing about until it was time to leave–they have a game room for kids where you can leave them while you take your time reading all the fine print in the actual museum. Darn. (If you, dear reader, ever take your kids to Seoul, don't repeat our mistake!)
Afterwards, we decided to repeat the previous night's bulgogi dinner before heading off to a “traditional village”:
The traditional village was a bit of a bust, mostly populated by Chinese tourists who wanted to take our pictures, but the kids did revisit a favorite activity that they've now pursued on several continents:
Finally, we ended the day grabbing street food at a really cool open air market.
Today, we're renting a car and driving a short distance to the city of Suwon. Looking forward to seeing the ancient castle walls there.
