After North Korea tossed bombs this direction, Thanksgiving week, these civil defense exercises are a little more serious. The sirens sound and all 22 million people living in Seoul come to a stop for a bit. The police are in the roads with gas masks on and ALL the cars come to a skreetching halt.
Not sure what is being said on the roaming loud speaker.
Jets flew overhead and then we watched the helicopters land on Post.
Madi sat on my bed and watched out the window the whole time. They practice at school. Normal school kids have fire drills but Ben and Madi have bomb drills. Madi cracked me up today with all her knowledge on bomb/nuclear safety.
I really love living in Korea....well Seoul that is. It's the military's best kept secret! It's just like Manhatten and the base is Central Park. You can see the base in this picture out our living room window. If you click on the picture to make it big you can see base housing with their red tile roofs.
