Camel - Spirit of the Water

See the lights out on the water Come and go, to and fro. In the time it takes to find them. You can live, you can die And nothing stops the river as it goes by. Nothing stops the river as it goes

All alone and all together Every day, come what may. By the time we find each other We can live, we can die. And nothing stops the river as it flows by. Nothing stops the river as it goes

Stationary Traveller (Tenth studio album, 1984)

Seokchon Lake Park (석촌호수)

Yes, It is spring now. Forsythia(개나리) and cherry blossoms(벚꽃) are bursting everywhere in Seoul. Here is my old trails Seokchon lake. This lake park originally formed part of the main course of the Hangang (River). As part of the Hangang riverbed development project in 1969, an artificial island was formed by the gradual accumulation of silt brought from upstream. This formed a separate lake away from the main Hangang river. It is a great place to walk throughout the four seasons during day or night, but especially in spring when flowers are in full bloom. The north part of Seokchon Lake, was originally a ferry and its formal name is Songpanaru Park. The lake has two parts: the East Lake and the West Lake. The East Lake is a good place for jogging, resting place for nearby official workers, and walks for bicyclers. The West Lake is good for having fun since it contains the Magic Island of Lotte World and Seoul Norimadang. In Seoul Norimadang, standing performances and special performances are held usually on weekends.
Admission: Free

Directions: Take Seoul Metro Subway line #2 to Jamsil Station
