We were ready to go this morning at 9am, and had a full day planned. We started off by going to the Korean National Museum, where we had a guided tour. There were over 15,000 pieces in the museum, so she showed us the highlights, seen below.
After this, we visited the Korean War Museum, where we also had a guided tour. It was very interesting to hear the history of the war from the Korean perspective, as we have only been exposed to it from an American perspective. There was a neat memorial for all of the soldiers who died in battle during the war. Many planes, tanks, and artillery were there for us to see.
After this, we went to Samsung, where we got to explore their D’light exhibit. This focused on how we interact with technology and how it will shape our everyday lives in our future.
We then met up with Dr. Lee, a Marketing professor at Whitworth, who brought a few Korean students for us to meet. It was a great experience meeting these students, and learning about Korea directly from them.
