We are getting ready to move. The apartment we now live in had been for sale for a few years for $1.5 million but Korea is also experiencing a slower economy. The couple who own this apartment....the wife has cancer and they need the money so they dropped the price down to $1 million and it sold in a heartbeat...so I keep telling myself in this whole situation I am not the one getting the raw end of the deal. Plus the new apartment we are moving to is a nicer $2 million dollar place....it's beautiful with beautiful grounds. (I still can't believe the U.S. military pays for us to live like this.) It's a community with 13 towers, 3 kids parks, built-in soccer field, basketball hoops, 2 gyms for adults and we got the top floor with a decent view.
Look at this old Korean temple. It's a landmark that they are not allowed to touch so they have to build all around it. This is in the middle of the 13 tower community...too cool.
