Yesterday I told you about the adventures I had in Seoul on Friday up through lunch. Today I will finish recounting what happened to me that day.
Following lunch, I walked south towards the 한 (Han) river in search of a museum for martyrs. I had memorized a map the night before, so I didn’t have much trouble at all. Down one big street and then follow the subway tracks as they ascend out of the earth to make the river crossing. I didn’t spend much time here because I saw a sign that seemed to say shorts are not allowed (at least that’s what the picture seemed to say, but I couldn’t understand the Korean). Since I was wearing shorts, I didn’t feel like pressing my luck. However, I did learn that 절두산 (Jeoldusan, literally “beheading mountain”) was where Korean Catholics were executed in 1866.
