Christmas Time!

Yay, it's almost Christmas! It finally feels like Christmas time this week as it has gotten cold and the whole city is decorated now.

We went for a walk tonight along the Cheongyecheon Stream in downtown Seoul. It's a neat spot. The whole thing was built up only in 2005 and it's always a nice place for a walk. Now it's all decked out for Christmas.

I feel relaxed for the first time in a while. My last classes were last week, this week is just entering final grades, organizing things, and doing a little bit of preparation for my January classes. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is a day off because Korea's having their presidential elections then.

When we first got to the Cheongyecheon there was a political rally going on for Lee Myung-Bak, the guy most likely (according to popularity polls) to win tomorrow. He's responsible for the rebuilding of the stream as he was the town mayor at the time. We caught a glimpse of him over the crowd.

Here are some pictures from the evening...

Lee is talking from that white vehicle in the left side of the picture.



Pretty lights!



Me and Al.
