Back in July, my friend Blake and I checked out Namsan Tower. It's like the Space Needle of Seoul. It's on a tall mountain, and then you can go even higher into the tower and look out over the whole, huge city from the observation deck. Back down on the mountain level, there are gates and fences and metal trees with thousands of locks on them left by couples hoping their love will be eternally fastened. It's a cool sight. Here are some pictures!

|Locks, locks, locks|
|Some rules are meant to be broken.|
|The weather was hot on the mountain, but obviously still enjoyable.|
|This is my city.|
You can see the shadow of the tower in the bottom right corner.
|The glass of the observatory windows showed how far from home we are.|

|I just love how there are mountains in this city. It's a favorite thing of mine.|
|Just to shake things up, here's a picture of locks and the city.|
