Seoul’s soul

Been to a few cities here and there, have declared some as favorites mainly on the basis of wanting to go back.  Truth to tell, it would be very unfair to say that one place is better than the other considering that answers will vary depending on a person’s point of view.  For someone who grew in a tropical country, a snow is a sight to behold, but for others, a sight of snow spells calamity.  At any rate, no two cities are alike as no two people are identical.  Each one has a soul of its own…each one having history distinct from the other.

I realized that when you’re in a place not your home, at some point you’ll feel lost.  But this sense of being lost is what makes such place endearing.  Sometimes, indeed, it takes a stranger to see beyond the surface, with an open mind, we see beauty of things we never and could never own.

Seeing Seoul for the first time, makes me want to wish it is not the last.  For a few days, I would like to think, I have somehow touched its soul, bu then who am I?.  But seriously, Seoul has touched me in more ways than words can spell.  With tradition merging with modernity right before your very eyes, how can a vacation of sightseeing go wrong…
