Leaves and lanterns

It was a rather unpleasant weekend here in Seoul, weather-wise.  Grey and cold, a bit rainy and a lot foggy/smoggy.  A perfect weekend for not doing much.  We watched Dexter, and Modern Family and Alexander - so bad it's almost good, and my husband is a sucker for a sword and sandal epic so he was happy.  We also had a Sunday roast beef with all the trimmings.  And we had long, delicious sleep-ins.

We did venture out of the apartment on Saturday afternoon, and walked to the Cheonggye stream to check out the Seoul Lantern Festival, which has some tenuous connection to the G20.  It's a pity we didn't see it at night, but it was still rather pretty, and had quite the festive atmosphere.  There was also lots of beautiful Autumn colour along the stream - my photos don't do it justice...

How was your weekend?


  1. Wow! What beautiful lanterns. Lucky you! Love the photos of the leaves too. Your weekend sounded nice :)

  2. So pretty... I think your photos are lovely. Would have loved to have seen that :)


Your comments make me happier than you could possibly imagine. Really! Thank you.
