Touring Seoul

The head of our Seoul office, Yvette Park, took us on a driving tour of the city. We saw the "Blue House," which is the equivalent of our White House. Interestingly, the President's home and offices are a thirty minute drive from the Parliament. It seems they don't see each other much.

We visited an old market, with a number of antique shops and art galleries. One of the galleries had the heads of famous people scattered around an alley on springs, kind of wierd. Here we are with the head of George Bush on a pike. Sorry the picture didn't come out too well, but, trust me, that's George Bush's head bouncing around. Right after we took this picture, a women ran up and, in a heavy accent said, "I love George Bush!" and embraced the head. Yvette commented dismissively, "She's Japanese," as though knowing that fact would explain her bizarre behavior.
