Just across from the Sommerset hotel there is a Palace to see. Gyeongbok Palace. We arrived just in time for the changing of the guard. It was WAY freezing outside but we paid the three dollars to go in and see it. I was neat! We couldn't stay long enought to learn much about it on a tour because of the cold temperatures. We had Jack in Omma style dress with 3 layers shoes and snow suit with a hat and under a blanket. He pretty much slept the whole time. I wanted to take a picture of his cute face with the palace in the background but it would have been torture. So although we got some pictures with him as a big hump on my back I still don't have great pictures of him in his birth country. Other than the hotel room. I felt so bad hauling him around in the carrier but he honestly slept the whole time, did not want a bottle and didn't need his pants changed. When we got back to the hotel room he was all smiles ready to play so I didn't feel so bad. He was up for a while when we visited the Palace museum nearby and enjoyed looking at the different displays.

All the celings are decorated ornately.
All the closer we could get of a picture of Jack at the palace. He is the blue bump on my back. Sleeping.
