The Markets

Here's one more post from activities from my parents' visit. Yes, I DID take my mom to that happy place known as the Flower Market. In fact, we made two visits there.

The orchids are astounding here.

The last visit to the flower market was en route to Namdaemun Market (this is Roots x 10 for those from my home town).  My mom kept saying, "so they do this EVERY day!"  "Yes, mom, every day."  This is the place to find great deals, bring your bargaining hat, and be amazed.  They have everything from shoes and clothes to strawberries and strange unidentifiable Korean cuisine.  I think everyone really enjoyed this experience.

The flowers are gorgeous!

Shouldn't everyone have a Roots? :)

What a fun place to visit. I think I could go a little crazy there!

What a fun trip! Those flowers are so beautiful--what a dangerous place for me I'm afraid. I wouldn't be able to pick just 1 bouquet's worth!
I am eagerly awaiting fairer weather for a venture to ROOTS myself. :-)

Dear Lynn,

Thanks for sharing the pictures! We enjoyed looking at them. The flowers are so beautiful. Can't wait for spring here!

We just got back from a drive around town. Got to see the library and other places that we plan to visit.

Yesterday Lisa and Carrie got lunch together at McDonalds. Yum! Yum! We even had fun playing with the happy meal princess toys! :-)

Hope you are enjoying your cruise! Don't get too sunburned.

Lisa! (and Carrie)
