OCT 21, 18 .. THE HAMILTON HOTEL .. SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA

Here in Seoul, South Korea, there are various Districts that, together, make-up the greater metropolitan Seoul area.

One of these Districts is called the Itaewon District.

The greater Itaewon District, at least as I understand it, is especially noted for being a bit-of-a-haven for foreign tourists. This means there are a lot of touristy venues including some 'night life' action.

Within the Itaewon District is an iconic and famous hotel named the Hamilton Hotel Seoul. All you have to tell a taxi driver is that you want to go to the Hamilton Hotel in Itaewon and the driver will know where to take you.

Its address is : 179 Itaewon-ro, Itaewon 1(il)-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul.

Please do not ask me what all of the above address means. Well I can, like you can, make an educated guess.

179 Itaewon-ro .. The actual street address.

Itaewon 1(il)-dong .. The Itaewon District 

Yongsan-gu .. You've got me on this

Seoul .. The name of the city that the Hamilton Hotel is located in.

The Hamilton Hotel Seoul, to coin-a-phrase, is one enormous 'landmark'.





The front desk, check in counter.




In the below photo, we have walked into the Bar and Grill located off the main lobby and are looking back at the front desk check-in area.

The time has come to go up to our room.

OCT 20, 18 .. SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, THE AMISO KOREAN RESTAURANT

This evening, my hosts here in Seoul, Terry and Kathy, along with other friends, enjoyed dinner here in Seoul, South Korea.

The below photos were snapped at the Amiso Korean Restaurant.

Just-in-case you come to Seoul and want to eat at The Amiso, it is located at 25 Myeongdong 4-gil, Myeongdong 2(i)-ga, Jung-gu, here in Seoul.





At our table, were several BBQ grills full of hot coals.


Our steak, cut into small bite-size pieces, was cooked right in front of us.




 Korean kimchi. Very tasty. Very healthy.







Just a quick-touch here on blogspot.

OCT 19, 18 .. ANCHORAGE TO SEATTLE TO SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA

Here we go loop-de-loop, Here we go loop-de-li, the trip from Anchorage, Alaska, to Seattle, Washington, and on to Seoul, South Korea.

I had two traveling companions with me on this trip. A friend of Patti and mine, Tandy along with her son Peter, a professional movie stunt man.

Patti, who could not go with us because she is in the middle of some dental work, will hopefully join the three of us in a week or so in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, and go with us to Irkutsk, Russian Siberia.

Out we go to the departure gate in Anchorage.



" Good Boy Captain. No one had to come over to you and tell you, 'Captain turn off your cell phone!' "



We're ready-to-go.




 "Hi Mister Polar. Goodbye Mister Polar."
