This is the view out of our front window. I would love to park a cushy lazy boy right here, sit all day and watch the neighborhood bustle around these quaint homes, narrow twisted staircases and rooftop gardens. If we watch carefully there is always something going on.
By night the view changes. Quaint streets transform into gold-lit allies while lights flicker in the homes on the hill.
Directly below is a stream of never-ending traffic. We opted to sleep in the back room to avoid its constant drown and yet, the street has its charms. If you look in the distance you can see Dongdaemun and by day you can make out the remains of the ancient Seoul Fortress Wall just on the crest of the adjacent hill.
