Seoul Tower

Seoul Tower gives great views of downtown Seoul. My favorite was atop the urinal.

The sculpture of the person who appeared to be jumping to their death was just creepy. The sculpture could be interpreted as someone soring, but it does not look that way to me. Given that Korea has the highest suicide rate in the world, I am not sure this is an image that should be encouraged.

On all of the fences around the tower, there are pairs of love locks (conveniently available in the shop for the less thoughtful lovers). Couples lock their locks together on the fence with a love note and then exchange keys. I thought it was cute for teenagers, Sandy thought it was a good idea for people who are in their 40's who have been married for 23 years.

A nice way to spend an hour.
