Seoul Lantern Festival 2010
In time for the first G20 Summit in Korea, the the second annual lantern festival, themed “Seoul, a forest of hope and light,” beautifully lit up the Cheonggyecheon Stream from the Cheonggye Plaza to the Samilgyo Bridge. This 1km stretch of the stream was decorated with about 15,000 lanterns of 213 variations and from 25 countries according to the Korea Tourism website.
It was amazing walking down the stream and looking at all the lanterns. It was also really cool to see all the G20 stuff and see the lanterns that represented America.
Here’s hoping that the G20 will help to take a big leap to helping the global economy!
