Day 3

I woke up at 10:45 last night and stayed awake until 2:30 this morning.  Olivia woke up for the day at 4.  So, this morning we hung out here at the hotel and mapped out everything we still want to do. 
We left here around 11:30 or 12 and went to Lotte Department Store. 
Walking to Lotte Dept. Store we saw this Chevy sign.  I love how it is in the background of a palace right in the heart of Seoul. 
As we walked we saw this cool thing....It is made out of old head lights from cars. 
It seems like there is a Lotte around here!!  This was something we didn't experience last time, so why not! 
This tree is huge! 
Inside this big tree was a small area with this tree. 
The inside allowed for a kaleidoscope view.  Olivia thought this was great! 
This was still an outside area/entry way to the mall. 
Olivia and Mammy waiting for our food.  
We got hungry, so we ate some sort of burger.  It definitely wasn't beef!
Somehow we zigged when we should have zagged.  We ended up at the Lotte Hotel.  Super nice!  They had a waterfall and some cool art to look at. 
Oh me!
We then found the underground mall.  Apparently this is where we belong.....Lotte Department Store was crazy expensive!!!  We got Olivia's Seoul Barbie another Hanbok to wear and then headed on for our next stop. 

We walked to the Hilton which is equivalent to Opryland Hotel at home.  We hung out here a while and enjoyed looking at all the Christmas decorations. 


 Olivia loved the train and is determined to talk Buppy in to getting his out for her.  I am quite confident I see a train being out at their house in the near future if Olivia has anything to do with it!  She only wanted her Buppy to do this with her! 

She reeeallly wanted to touch it!  Looks like she may head right over that fence! 
 When we left the Hilton, we walked back to Seoul Station to go get a few things at Lotte Mart.  Its kinda like a huge Wal-Mart.  Well, it was closed.  So we killed some time in Lotte Outlets (see, there is a lot of Lotte!) and then went to eat. 
 A great little shopper!
We walked back to our hotel from Seoul Station and found it this time!!  Olivia fell asleep on John's shoulder on the way back.  I got her changed and in bed.  She is out!!!  She has overall been a great little traveler.  She keeps asking, "Is this Korea?"  I don't know what she expected, but she seems to still be looking for it.
Up for tomorrow is lunch with Dr. Kim, the President of ESWS and a short meeting.  We are going to go to Lotte World after that and maybe go ice skating.  There is a little restaurant that we want to eat at again.  I am not sure what else we will get into tomorrow, but those are the two definite places.  I forgot how amazing Seoul is.
