There came a weekend in December when I joined R in Seoul. While she met friends and went shopping, I took advantage of our hotel's proximity to Changdeok Palace and paid it a visit. Despite being one of Seoul's finest palaces, it didn't have too many visitors on this bright Saturday. Tour groups were here and there, but their scarcity only propounded Changdeok's vastness. Its size made wandering the grounds quite fun. I enjoyed being alone in its courtyards and shadows.
