Seoul Lantern Festival

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of going to the breathtaking Seoul Lantern Festival. I went with a friend, Danielle, and about a thousand other people. It takes place on the Cheonggye Stream, and the theme for this year was "Hanseong Baekje (Dream of One Thousand Years)". Basically, there were tons of glowing paper lanterns set up on platforms in the center of the stream. The visitors walked up and down the sides of the stream, and everyone was taking pictures. The festival is still happening next weekend, you can check out this website if you want more details!
