Tapgol Park and the area around it is where all the old people hang out. Well, we know why. This park shows the vast contrast between a tourist hot-spot and a regular street frequented by the locals of Seoul. This is what most tourists need to see; the side of Seoul that belongs to the locals.

    I love my Alexa and my echo I use in my house. I want to give one to my Mom because she’s losing her sight and I think and echo might help her. Can I loads the apps I think she could use like news , trivia using my phone apps then give it to her? My mom doesn’t have a phone because of her vision plus if the family adds the apps or the device she could use her echo. My Mom doesn’t have a computer either but her complex has wi-fi. Can someone help me help my 97 yr old mother. Thank you
