We had to fit a lot into each day since due to our budget we were on a tight time frame and had limited days in each country. So the same day we arrived in Seoul Korea, we dropped our bags in our the very small room we rented (which took about an hour to find on some back streets:)) and headed out to the center.
The streets were just packed with crowds and it was so exciting to touch the Asian culture for the first time. It was a challenge communicating since we only spoke very limited Korean. WE communicated much through theater and dance.
