So we were flying over the city in our helicopter the other day...well, alright, we have poached a picture from the Internet because the 'upload photo' function is still acting goofy. There is a post on the Blogger Help page apologizing for the inconvenience, so we hope to be able to return to regularly scheduled programming soon.
This photo gives you a good sense of the scope of the mountains encircling the city. Nothing too majestic, but enough to induce altitude sickness in flatlanders like us. You also get to see a pocket of big buildings densely packed together. This is only one of probably a hundred or so areas like this in Seoul. Even if we lived here for years, I can't imagine getting used to that.
