Sharing a Korean meal

Looks like everyone had a good time eating at Sobahn restaurant. A nice variety of dishes to introduce students to Korean.  What a great group of people - willing to try new dishes and fun to be with.

Post trip reflection

Upon returning to Kansas City, post a trip reflection (minimum of two paragraphs) summarizing your thoughts on the trip: What did you learn? What had the most impact? What surprised you both about the trip and yourself? etc. You do not need to post a classmate response for the last day but you are certainly encouraged to read each others reflections.

Last dinner in Korea

A traditional hanjeonsik meal in a beautiful hanok.

Ihwa Mural Village

Clearly many of the murals are made with the selfie culture in mind. And we were happy to oblige

Walking the old city wall with great views of Seoul

We were able to look at the old city wall and learn about the structure that once contained the city of Seoul. Much of the wall is being rebuilt or repaired so that people can see the original path

Ihwa Mural Village Tour

We had a tour around the village where we learned history of the residents who live there and the revitalization that the city has undertaken in this area. It is really a beautiful space but points out the problems that people of lower class have all over the world
