Gangdong-gu isn’t the sexiest district in Seoul. When I first moved here, after years in the fun of Seodaemun, Mapo and Jongno, I was a bit appalled. But I have to admit, Gangdong has slowly started to grow on me.
Thursday I took a little walk and fun some random things that really amused me. For one, Gangdong has a lot of green space. Here’s a couple of pics from near the Han River, right across from the Walker Hill Hotel.
Green space, however, also means it has a surprising number of derelict buildings scattered throughout the district. Real Buffalo Bill places.
And then, while going past a sad little garage near Amsa Station, I saw this: a Ferrari getting some serious work done.
Oh, and here are a couple of photos of the Chuseok night moon. We had some great views of it in my part of town.
