In downtown Seoul, there runs a large stream that was once covered in concrete but has since been revitalised into a park. It is really gorgeous and such a unique juxtaposition of city and natural settings. As you can read in Wikipedia, there was hesitancy among many inhabitants of Seoul for the project but the place has since become popular among locals and tourists. I am thankful for the project. It was really wonderful.
They had some features from Buddha’s birthday festivities still up so we were able to see those too.
On the walls there were tiles depicting an emense royal procession.
Aside from the quick downturn in the weather – it went from clear sky to dark black with rain in the matter of 30 min – it was a wonderful walk in downtown Seoul.
