Last night in Seoul

For my last night in Seoul I headed down to the Seoul Lantern Festival that was taking place at Cheonggyecheon which is a small creek that runs down one of the main streets. It is below street level so you can go down and walk along beside the shallow water. For the lantern festival they had placed and lit up many different figures and lanterns all along the course of the creek. It went for about 2 km. The crowds were HUGE and absolutely amazing but I stayed up top and walked along the road because the wait to get down the stairs to walk along the creek was about 30 minutes.

I took a good number of photos but am only posting three for now because I have to pack and get ready for my morning flight to Okinawa tomorrow. I will post more of the photos tomorrow night.
