So taking the underground  to Busan station and there try to get a ticket. It is a busy day because it is the start of may holidays in Korea. But getting a ticket for the fast train to Seoul was easy. The train was leaving at 12.00. I have to say a very smooth train ride from Busan to Seoul is from the south east to the north west of Korea and took only 2 hours and 48 minutes. The train reaches speeds of over 250 km/h.. Going to my guesthouse in Dongdaemun area was easy and after arriving there I relaxed a little had some food and then I went to the Lantern Parade in Seoul. I was really looking forward to it and the reason to be here at this date. Luckily other people of the guesthouse also went there and they invited me. So they learned me about the metro system here and the money card for the transport system . The Lantern parade is held because of the Birthday of Buddha. And it was even more exciting then I hoped.
