First, JH grabbed some grub from one of the convenience stores next to the river. He tends to be very camera shy and this time I turned it into a silly game.
Play area for the kidlets~
The Han was looking low and pallid, but still gave us that great presence. JH took my picture and I acted out in my happiness.
We meandered are way towards the bridge.
On the way we found Seoul's good friend Haechi. Actually, this "bench" was more like a see-saw, that you could go up and down with.
Sorry, Haechi but there is already one animal that I love (Tom).
From there we took a look at the lower-bridge that accommodates pedestrians and cars.
If you are frequent person to this bridge I would say look out, especially if you cross at night time. We found a hole in it.
We didn't go very far but as we walked JH noticed some writing on a post. He translated it to that there was a couple that often frequented this bridge. This was a happy memorable place for them. The writer (we don't whether they are male or female) wrote that they knew the relationship wouldn't last. But the breakup was hard. A few days later they came back and wrote that their memories are starting to fade. Goodness! It was romantic and so dramatic.
Plus it made the feeling at the spot seem so special.
Well my time is waning here in South Korea. I've got just about a week left before I head back home for my 3 month vacation. (Yes, you heard me! And I'll be back.)
This moment at the Han, I think I felt so free. I don't want my life in Korea to end, and it isn't, but I know that I am finally going to be home for longer than just 2 weeks. The past 2.5 years have been in Korea and it has consumed my whole being. Let's just say that this vacation is welcomed and I am looking forward to the objective reflection it will offer.
