Hi! Seoul*

Here is the last video of Oooju before walking became his main mode of moving around. We're still in Incheon at Jihyun's apartment. It's probably about 5am. We all kind of woke up around 4:30am and went outside so we wouldn't disturb Jihyun and her family. Being the animal lover/terrorizer he is, Oooju kept trying to catch these pigeons for about 30 minutes.

So after 3 days in Incheon, we finally made it into Seoul. We stayed at my cousin Junoh's house. He lives in Samsong dong which is a really nice area of Seoul, two stops from Kangnam and COEX mall. We pretty much had the whole apartment to ourselves because Junoh, his wife Miyoung and daughter Ji-ine are all staying at his mother-in-law's house. Anyways, it was raining the first full day in the city so we decided to spend the day at COEX mall. we were there from 9am to 4pm. But it was here that Oooju finally really started walking.

*Hi Seoul is the new city motto. The full thing is Hi! Seoul: Soul of Asia. Korea Sparkling is the new motto for the whole country thought up by the Korean Tourism Organization. It used to be Dynamic Korea, but now, Busan's using Dynamic for it's city motto.
