Lunch was great - Bulgogi, a beef dish with Rice which our friend Sharon had taught us to make when she stayed with us in Belgium - we all agreed he had chosen a good restaurant.
So then to church with up to 27,000 people in the one service. It was a communion service and we all were amazed at how quickly communion was given to everyone, quicker than in any of the churches we attend.
Then after we had seconds - it was so good - we wandered around to find a coffee shop but had to make do with a Dunkin Donuts as another one was closing early and another was so small it didn't have enough free seats for the 5 of us. Nice coffees though and a long chat and then back to the hotel.
Monday was a very special day for us. We had arranged to meet up with Sharon again to explore more of Seoul but another Korean friend from our time in Belgium had driven in from another area to meet us as well. It was great to see Park again after so many years and to hear about his family.
We had a lovely time going around the largest palace and seeing the changing of the guards and chatting with these friends.
Of course we then had to find a coffee shop to have our tea and coffee and continue chatting with our old friends, before saying goodbye to Park as he had to drive a distance home again.
Next stop was a traditional Korean village area where we met up with our new friend Caroline from last Sunday. We enjoyed a display of Taekwondo, Fred & Daniel had a go at Taekwondo, we all tried a game of throwing long sticks into metal tubes (I almost managed it and Daniel did it first go), then a go at archery, and lastly a walk round the village.
We finished off the day with a bus ride to the Seoul Tower where we looked down on the city of Seoul from the mountain, watched a short but very clearly produced projection display on the side of the tower and then a time of photos.
Then it was time to say goodbye to Caroline and Sharon and of course to invite them to visit Northern Ireland.
So three goodbyes in one day - I don't like goodbyes.
