Namsan Tower, the center and most known point in Seoul, it is also the highest point in Seoul, from the top of this tower you can see the entire city. I for one am very excited because in less than 12 hours I am departing this Atlantic Coast and traveling back to the orient. My first stop SEOUL, the SOUL of Asia. It is truly one of my favorite cities in the entire world. I have friends, family and fond memories of this city that make me nostalgic for the many visits to this beautiful city.
I am going to be stopping through Seoul on my way to Beijing. Thankfully its more than a two hour layover and I will actually get to stay in town for a little longer than 2 or 3 hours. Following my stop in Seoul I am traveling to Beijing on Sunday and will officially start my year in China.
Today, things in China are a little less open than they are in the USA, and even though I want so much to post on this blog regularly the Great Firewall of China blocks all wordpress blogs. So I will not be able to post as regularly as I did during the school year. However, I do have another site that I will be able to access while I am abroad. I can send e-mails to this site that will update you all to when I have new pictures online, and where you can find them. So in the next week or so look back on this site and you should find an update that lists all of my pictures from my trip to Seoul and my first week in China.
