At Jogmyo Shrine, a Confucian shrine dedicated to the spirits of deceased kings and queens, you can find this eerie and apropos tree.
Inside the “spirit boxes”, spirits are supposed to reside, beckoned though a hole when they smell incense across the room.
In one of the shrine rooms, you can spot a wax figure of a Korean king.
After the shrine, we took a spooky cable car ride to Seoul Tower, which was decorated for Halloween.
Up on the observation deck: yup, North Korea is that way (about 250 km).
Seoul is deeply nestled in the mountains. These mountains can be seen between buildings, even in the heart of downtown, giving the city a unique urban but natural aesthetic.
At night, we had one of the best salsa experiences ever at Salsa Club Naomi. The dancers, both male and female, were amazing. Everyone was on par with the best dancers at a congress, and people were friendly and polite. Seoul salsa is on fire! 💃🎺💥
We met a new friend, Minsuk, who kindly showed us around and surprised us with tequila! ✌️

How do you do to put so much clothes in your luggage? It is amazing!
We use the rolling method, where most of our clothes are cylindrically packed. Works pretty well!
The tree looks spooky, I don’t think I would hang around to see the spirits beckon thru the hole. Hey its almost Halloween. Nice to see North Korea from afar. Love the lock with your message, like in France. Can’t get away from Salsa its all around you. Enjoy Love ya both God bless
