Thursday morning saw the group heading off to a traditional house in Seoul for some unusual cultural activities. We were paired with "youth volunteers" -- a group of very bright young Korean students who speak very good English. Together, we tried on traditional Korean clothing, made kimchi, and made wood block prints.

After that, the kids showed us around Unhyeung Palace, one of the minor palaces of Seoul.
