Day 46 of 111. Seoul, South Korea

The Gyeongbokgung Palace was beautiful to visit. Our guide helped us understand the organization of the buildings. I really enjoyed the colors and patterns and details everywhere. The feng shui of the palace has mountains in the background from which comes strength. The water in the moat helps retain the strength and the fantasy creatures overlooking the moat keeps away evil spirit. The guards were practicing their changing of the guard when we arrived. The spectacle was colorful and impressive. One interesting fact was a jug that was used to collect and urine to be used as fertilizer.
