I wanted to share a few pictures with you; these were taken in Seoul, South Korea, earlier this week. This is a beautiful and exotic land; the language sounds almost musical to me. (I can say nothing except "thank you," and I probably mispronounce even that.) The people have been gracious and helpful. The sights, sounds, and scents (such as the ubiquitous kimchee) are all new to me. . . It's all a part of the experience!
The first picture was taken at a historic site--not sure where we were, but the architecture on this pagoda was so intricate and colorful that I had to snap a picture.
We had lunch in a vegetarian restaurant that day--would you believe a twenty-course meal? This picture shows only part of it! I truly enjoyed most of it; I must admit that I haven't developed an appreciation for seaweed yet, but I decided to be brave and try it all! I am finally able to use chopsticks--won't say that I've mastered them, but at least I won't have to ask for a fork now.
Finally, I snapped this picture of an enormous bouquet being delivered on a motor bike. The driver was laboring to carry one of the two that he had carried on this bike into a door. How on earth he balanced two of these monsters, I have no clue!
I have no stamping supplies with me, so I hope that you enjoy these pictures in lieu of stamped art. I should be back home and on to regular posts by January 2 or 3. Thanks for looking!
