Outing Day.

On the 18th of February, we went out to the city to do some touring ;) so we came to one of the museum of Korea and saw this door thing infront of the subway. They wrote there, that if you go through this door, you will live a long life ;D And this is the first museum of Korea. *free entrance ;)But next to the museum, we saw this !!GyeongBokGung. The main palace of the Joseon Dynasty. Infact, we were just in time to see the guards exchange shifts. cause last time this used to be the king's palace. so there were guards guarding :)Here is the video of the exchange of shifts. Its kinda long though. but nice ;)

(Total for 1 adult and 2 kids=6000원*Rm18) The rules for the guards is that they cannot move unless necessary. NO picking nose, moving, scratching.. haha..staing next to them were like standing next to statues.. !! This guy was handsome ;DAnd orighty !! entering time ! Look at this animal sculpture.
