(I’m almost caught up on the events I wanted to blog about for the past few months. Woo-hoo!)

The second weekend of August, Quinn’s parents visited Korea, so on August 7, I helped him show them around the  Jogno area of Seoul. Which meant a visit to Changdeok Palace and the Forbidden Garden (the King’s garden that no one, not even the highest officials and certainly not some foreign English teacher, was allowed to walk in).

Enjoy the pictures:

We ended up having to pay for and take a Korean tour in order to see the garden, but it was worth it. A peaceful two-hour walk through woodsy gardens was a nice break after a month of hectic classes.
