I met up with my dad’s cousin, my uncle. My dad told me that I met him once when he came to the states when I was younger, but I honestly don’t remember. So, I got to meet an uncle!
Anyways, he had me meet him at the City Hall subway station.
He wanted to show me the changing of the guards. The guards go from one gate and march down the streets to another gate.
Here are some of the guards with the horses getting ready for the changing of the guards.
And yes, that is a Kim Yu-na Billboard in the background. (Her face is everywhere in Korea)
Presentation of the guard change.
So they went from this gate, and walked a few blocks to another gate.
The marched all the way to that statue.
If you look behind the statue and you see the gate and the blue in the mountains, that’s where the President of South Korea lives.
I think this statue is of the person who created Han-gul. The korean alphabet. I think its him. My uncle taught me so much about Korean history this day, that I might be confused. So I think he’s the guy who created the korean alphabet.
I forget exactly what these dates meant, but I took a picture of it because it was something important to history.
So thats the history part of City Hall. My next post will be the other things I saw with my uncle. Such as walking by the Lantern festival on the river, walking past a 100 year old church, and looking at the G20 Summit communications exhibition.
