Teddy bears depicting modern day lifestyle in Korea (above)
and how Koreans in the past celebrated their life (below).
According to the Korean legend, a God imposed a stern test on a she-bear and a tiger who both wished to be turned into human forms. If I recalled correctly from what I read in N Seoul Tower's Teddy Bear museum, the bear won as she was patient and followed the rules set upon by the God. She was then turned into a human, and bore children (with bear ancestry) when she married.
The Namsangol Traditional Garden.
It was the usual hop down from the bus-walking aroundthe place-shot a few shots-hop back onto the bus kind of itinerary for this place in particular.
Shot from the window of our tour bus. I like the name 'Seoul Station' -
sounds a bit like the name of a music band, doncha think? :P
One of the many courtyards of GyeongbukGong Palace.
Korean dolls on display
A souvenir vendor outside the shop where we had our breakfast. Bought a few items from here, with the help of our Korean assistant tour guide.
Possibly my favorite street scene that I shot in Seoul. One of my earliest shots as we learnt to embrace the cold morning in Seoul. Was on my way to hop onto the bus when my still sleepy eyes up woke up to this scene. Three colorful guitars
with Korean wordings - what's not to love?
