The following day, we decided to check out the Supia Swim Park on Yeouido. We decided water fun is a necessity in order to survive the hot and humid summers of Seoul (but not a good place for a camera). The third day, Stephanie and Emma needed a change of pace, so I stayed home and played with Emma, while Stephanie took off on the subway to do some shopping.
Saturday, Bob was able to join us as we explored Childrens' Grand Park. The name says it all: this huge park has everything a kid could desire! There was a zoo, a petting area, camel and pony rides, an amusement park, a water play area, performances, botanical gardens, playgrounds, a marine animal house, a parrot village, aquatic birds, musical fountains and a kids auto park. It was more than we could do in one day, but we covered a lot of it. It was fabulous, and I only wish we had visited here with all the family.
Oh . . . look; it's a five-legged elephant!
Ben arrived late that afternoon, and we headed to the recently discovered "Taco Bell" in Itaewon. We picked up a box of tacos and headed to Banpo River Park to watch the colorful water fountain show off the bridge. We were surprised and delighted to see the river ferries gather in the middle of the Han River to watch a fireworks display. With a band playing music in the background and the rhythmic flow of fountains spraying across the river, it made for a magical night in Seoul.
