I have arrived in Seoul

OK...I am in Seoul. I was telling everyone that the weather would be better than expected - and it is if you look at the temperature (2 degrees). But it is rainy and foggy, which is not exactly holiday weather. Anyway - I will hang out at the hotel for now, but I am meeting a friend later for dinner and drinks.

On my way from the airport to the hotel, I took this picture of a park from the taxi. It has no historical or personal significance...it was just there and I had my camera out.

As for the taxi ride, I am probably lucky to be alive considering the driver. He seemed to have an aversion to stopping, which is not good when there is heavy traffic. And he also took me to the wrong hotel - surprisingly, I knew where I was in relation to the right hotel and could point which way to go. HE kept pointing at his head and saying something in Korean. I probably do not want to know.

Anyway - it is nice to be on holiday. And I have three days to find out if there is anything worth doing in Seoul. I will explain why that is important later.
