Hotel Hopping In Seoul

After an enjoyable wining and dining tour with Daniel last night (photos to follow), today was our day to move from the Holiday Inn to the Westin.

Rather than fighting subway crowds with our roll-aboards, we took a couple of taxis and did it the easy way in a 20-minute ride through fairly heavy traffic, at least by our standards.

Today is our first (and possibly only) rainy day and after a walk around a busy pedestrian area a couple of blocks from the hotel, we ate a large lunch in a Chinese restaurant. We managed to get lost for awhile on our way back to the Westin, but eventually found our way to our new hotel.

We've spent the afternoon playing Spades, during which Tom and Ellyn decisively vanquished Kathy and Brian. There's always another day...

Our rooms are quite sumptuous and there's an Executive Lounge here that we'll visit soon for the cocktail and appetizer hour. There are views of three sides up on the top floor so we'll have a good look at Seoul, even on an overcast day.
