The next morning in Seoul it was a Sunday and I went over to the Itaewon region of the city. I attended a church service there and then walked through Itaewon to reach a bus stop where I’d be catching a bus to Namsan Seoul Tower for some sightseeing. Itaewon is close to the dead center of Seoul and is the city’s most diverse district, being home to a large chunk of the city’s foreign population. You’ll find people and businesses from all over the planet in Itaewon, and there’s also an American military base at the west end of the district. In the years after the Korean War this was one of the shadier parts of Seoul but in the last few decades its been cleaned up quite a bit. In 2017 this was the part of Seoul that I stayed in while visiting the city but on this day I was just passing through. Near Itaewon Station I found my bus stop and got on the bus that would take to Namsan Seoul Tower. That day’s sightseeing was about to begin.
