Ok, so I haven't posted much about what we did while my family was here. Last Saturday, June 3rd, we took them out to a Changdeokgung, or Changdeok Palace. It was a pretty hot day, and we got to the palace about an hour before the English tour. So, we had a quick lunch (sandwiches and kimbap) across the street at a mini mart.
After the palace, which took about 2 hours to do, we stopped to get some ice cream and sat under a pavilion to cool off. Then I suggested we head over to the Buddhist temple, the one that the Lotus Lantern Festival was at. Chris took Maya and Nadia and headed off to Myeongdong to get coffee and go inside somewhere, since he wasn't interested in the temple. So, they hopped into a cab. We were going to meet them later at Din Tai Fung for dimsum. So, we walked to the temple.
I even tried to get a picture of the Buddhist swastika in light of recent discussions about that on the GoPets forums, but couldn't get a good one...I'll try next time. After going to the temple, we walked to Myeongdong. Um, it didn't look that far on the map! LOL It would have been fine if it weren't for the heat.
But dimsum was YUMMY, as usual. :-)
