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.
