18 Hours in Seoul

Only a stopover this time but a week on the way back which should be very interesting if these are anything to go by.

In the hotel there were instructions on how to repell out the window in the case of fire. We were a little worried about how to break the window until we found the hammer in the repelling kit.



Our room had a couple of pojagi quilts (framed and nailed to the walls) and also one little quilt above the toilet.




This interesting sculpture was the only thing to look at on the 1km trip from airport hotel to the airport.

Slightly phallic, do you think? There must be a story there...

OMG! that sculpture is too much. I guess that is to get people excited about Korea, lol. That really shows the cultural differences between the east and west, I don't think anything like that could get approved in the US.

The repelling kit in the hotel is pretty amazing too.

Love the little quilts though...
