You don't know me by name

This was Day 2 of our trip. This was not in the city of Seoul. We ate at a nice restaurant (vegetarians and health nuts would love this place). Rice was cooked inside bamboo wood to make it fragrant. Then, they served countless options of side dishes made from healthy greens and roots. Very delicious. Also, this was one of the most important days of my life.

They built this set to shoot a drama series called "Dae Jang Gum" about life in the palace and about this famous cook, based on a true story. After they finished, they turned it into a "theme park" for tourists and visitors.

Felt really good to walk here. Away from the city, away from home, really felt so peaceful. This is Gwang Reung, royal tombs of King Sejo and Queen Jeong Hui, my ancestors.

Can you see the tomb way up on the top?
