Walking around Seoul

After visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace I walked around the streets of the area.

Below is a selection of photos that I took. More photos can be viewed in my Flickr photo album.

I came across the American Embassy. It was surrounded by police patrolling the streets.

The American Embassy
The men in gray shirts, dark pants, and dark caps are police. Nice wall and barbed wire fence.

I walked around and found a great Vietnamese restaurant. Always get off the big main streets and wander down the smaller streets with everyone else. That's where the great food is.

Pho noodles with beef.

After lunch I went looking for the Canadian Embassy. It was a few minutes walk away.

The Canadian Embassy.
No walls. No fence. No police patrolling the street in front.

Sit, have a rest and a coffee. We don't mind.
I wonder if it was Timmies.

Then I wandered down to Seoul Station. I walked through it with my luggage after I arrived on my flight last night. It reminded me a lot of Shinjuku Station in Tokyo...very big and very busy.

Then I headed back to the hotel to rest for a bit and upload my pictures.
