I had so much fun wearing a Hanbok: the representative example of traditional Korean dress worn during festivals. I felt like royalty because the cloth was so pretty! Marlie and I sat on this bench that was meant for a king!
Another great experience was that were able to see a Korean traditional style home. Everything looked very detailed and elaborate; from the roof shingles to the beautiful artwork painted on the ceiling, to the roof wood work.
Seoul has become a much more modernized city, so to be able to see a historical piece of architecture was an authentic experience.
I really want a house built like this, I felt that it had good energy.
Just before we snapped this photo (below), we were able to see a ceremony outside of the gate, with trumpets, drums, and flags. I am not sure what it was for, but it was pretty amazing- they were very serious with their movements, which showed me that it was something to respect.
As you can see in the photo, the lettering is actually Chinese characters and it means “gate.”
Another mountain top view was in order, here we enjoying the view from Eungbong Mt.
So many eventful days in Seoul! I am very tired! Ask me any questions you’d like.
Until next time.
