South of the Han River

The view from my bedroom.
The view from my bedroom.

This morning I am writing my post up in one of Xi towers at the home of my “home stay family” with Jee Hyan.  Yesterday we shopped in Gangnam. We visited the second largest bookstore in Seoul, shopped around Gangnam station and dined at an Itallian-Japanese  Fusion restaurant.  Last night, after a lovely meal with my host family, we went down to the Han river to watch the fireworks.  It is very easy to get around Seoul; you can get anywhere in an hour it seems.  Han Joon, Jee Hyun’s brother, just finished vet school is now serving his three years in military service.  Her father, Jinwoo, was just promoted to Director of the hospital and is a gracious host along with his wife, Moon He.  Their apartment is lovely and comfortable.  I am enjoying their warm and gracious hospitality. Their Yorkie, Pepper, is fun to play with!

    What an amazing view from your room! It looks like you had fun. I want to go see the fireworks now, and maybe go to Gangnam!
