Christmas in Korea - Day 5, Shinjang Shopping Mall




Seoul is an enormous city with a population of 25 million.  We wanted to take back a few souvenirs for our grandchildren.  Paul took us to a shopping area near Osan Air Base.  This is the sort of place that I recall from the time I served a tour in Korea with the U.S. Army 45 years ago in 1964-65.  We had a good time tramping around looking at things, and ate some good Korean Bulgogi, but didn't buy anything.  Instead we went into Osan and shopped the Base Exchange where we found what we were looking for at a better price.  We let the Air Force do the haggling for us.

25 million people. How does one manage a city that big. Interesting pics.

Merry Christmas, Bill and Susan.

J'ai vu que Grant a bien grandi ! 2 ans déjà ! Je me souviens des photos de ses premiers jours...
Many kisses.

I wonder where one wants to go to have a quiet moment in a city of 25 million? Fascinating post.
