Seoul Searching Tour

Its exactly a year ago when I went to South Korea. I attended the 4th World Congress of International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine. We landed in the Incheon International Airport aboard Philippine Airlines flight. I was picked up by my friend Orlan and stayed at his place in Bucheon for overnight and met Jimboy and the rest of the guys. They prepared and served me dinner with Korean foods using the stainless steel utensils including the chopsticks.

The following day Orlan sent me off to the subway and searched my way to Seoul. From the station I took a taxi to COEX convention hall. It was good that I found my way. The opening ceremony just started when I arrived. A fashion show was staged. I met participants from different countries and from the Philippines. I joined the group of Drs. Alipio, Martinez, Barredo, Barba, Flores, Lim and others.

I was able to visit the Korean Folk Village, Dongdaenum Market, Doota Mall and other interesting places. I was able to don the hanbook, the traditional Korean costume and witnessed a traditional Korean wedding.
