i just got back from a 3 day trip to seoul and let me give this advice to anyone who might ever go to south korea. for example like inspiring teachers or military. go to seoul. life changing experience. the DMZ alone was worth the trip let alone the sick clubs and shopping. i don't even know where i would begin to start on the story of this trip. a city of 10 million people and thousands of things to do.
here some pictures:
north korean standing watching on the border. just waiting for one of us too fuck up/ crazy shit
south korean also standing watch. strategically placed with half his body behind the wall so the north koreans don't know what he's holding in his left hand which is nothing lmfao. they also wear avator sunglasses for intimidation and they only choose the best solders to stand watch there. they are also 6 feet or taller so show they are bigger than the enemy since north koreans are on average 8 inches shorter than the average south korean which is like 5'7''. there has been a few incidents where tourist have crossed the border and started shoot outs. one time a russian from the north korean side ran to the south to escape and it started a 5 minute shoot out with casualties. that russian now lives safely in seoul married to a korean. yes he choose that location to run haha.
in one of those buildings there is a peace treaty room that is divided in half by tape to signify the border. we weren't allowed in due to h1n1 which fuckin sucked since we're all vaccinated but whatever. another one of the blue buidlings is for the swiss folks who act as a neutral between the two countries which is hilarous.
good times. the clubs were amazing
