We spent a morning at Yonsei University on a wonderful tour given by Fred's cousins Peter. We learned a lot of the family's fascinating history since their great-grandfather came to Korea and founded the university. Since then their grandparents, uncles and aunts have served as missionaries, their great-aunt was the queen's physician and another aunt who founded an orphanage among many other things was murdered by a North Korean terrorist.

We took the subway to visit several parts of Seoul, including the Night Market and were treated to the nighttime lights of the city.
