After hectic, smelly, and crowded Bangkok, the orderliness of Seoul was just what I needed to transition back to western life. Living in Bangkok has been amazing but it has shown me how much I can appreciate good public transportation, clean restrooms, and food prepared under somewhat sanitary conditions. There was so much to see and do in Seoul. I walked around many of the neighborhoods known for their architecture or shopping, went to two museums and one palace, hiked along the ancient wall that surrounds the city, and drank in the famous nightlife districts. And I still didn't get to see it all. Seoul has so much to offer, I really hope I can go back soon to do it all again and see more.
