( The parents with a 세월 [Sewol] demonstration behind them )
Parents in Korea - Day 8
2014.05.17 @ 독립문 & 삼청동
The seventh day of our trip was spent in 수원 [Suwon], so photos didn't really happen. We visited my neighborhood, my work, and the fortress. On the eighth day, we went to the Seodaemun Prison Museum. Unfortunately, I accidentally deleted most of the photos from the prison, but I have all the photos from after that tour. Right outside the prison is 독립문 [Independence Gate] and Independence Park. There was a big demonstration concerning the 세월 [Sewol] Ferry. We jumped on the subway after that, and we had food and drinks in 삼청동 [Samcheong-dong] and paid the 북촌한옥마을 [Bukchon Hanok Village] a visit. I don't have photos from their last day either, but we went to a baseball game and spent some time eating delicious food, 열탄불고기.
