So, thursday I decided to go to Changdeok palace. This is the only palace that requires you to follow a tour when you go in, except, of course, on thursdays when it costs five times as much for admission (15,000 instead of 3,000). Lucky for me this counts as a cultural activity and my program will reimburse me for it. It is definitely the most beautiful of the palaces, especially the so-called "secret garden" in the back.
Saturday I headed out with my sketchbook, planning to stop and get some coloured pencils before going to Sajik park and drawing. I took the bus to Insadong for the stationary store across the street, but you can't go near Insadong without walking inside for a bit...
Look what I found:
As I was walking to the park afterwards, it started raining so I just got on the bus back to campus.
Too Dangerous to go at this alone
