I arrived in Seoul in mid-November to visit my older brother Dennys, whom I hadn’t seen in months. A few days later, Seraina arrived, whom I hadn’t seen in five weeks. My brother showed us around on some days, on others we discovered the city on ourselves by subway and by foot, walking around the numerous neighborhoods, all of them so different from each other. On our way to the famous Bukchon Hanok Village, we found a lovely tiny bookstore called Veranda Books.
