Olympic Park

Back in 1988 Seoul hosted the summer Olympics. We went to Seoul's Olympic Park this past weekend and I was totally impressed with how much art and green space was in the park. Last winter Kwang and I visited Beijing's Olympic park and it was a concrete wonderland. Seoul did it right though and the park is beautiful.
The amount of modern art in the park was incredible. There were lots of giant impressive pieces like this one.

Perfect picture opportunity!

This was really cool. The sphere shape is created by hanging pipes that have been arranged in a way that creates a 3-D illusion. Kwang was quick to remind me that this represents the S. Korean flag and the energy of the ying and yang.
