On Our Way Home from Hong Kong -- Super Sights in Seoul

 On the way home from our trip to Hong Kong, we had a 15-hour lay over in Seoul, so we decided to take a 6-hour tour of the Highlights of Seoul.  We toured the immense Gyeongbok Palace and the National Folk Museum, browsed through the colorful Korean shops, ate fire meat and kimchee at a Korean restaurant, and enjoyed some traditional Korean entertainment.  The Gyeongbok Palace was the main palace of Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910) and was the last dyansty in Korea.  Now Seoul is a modern city.  It has made way for modern freeways and tall buildings, while still preserving  its ancient heritage.  We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
