MY LOVELY AFTERNOON STROLL THROUGH SEOUL

I think I wrote about Insadong before. But it was more like a small blurb…so why not give this place some more love? Let’s do it.

Insa-dong Street is one of the most memorable attractions in Seoul and represents the focal point of Korean traditional culture and crafts. Stores in Insa-dong specialize in a wide variety of goods that can only be purchased or appreciated in Korea: hanbok (traditional clothing), hanji (traditional paper), traditional teas, pottery, and folk crafts.

Interesting. I did see a lot of crafts being sold here….should have bought some…but was too tired…I started my journey at 8Am on this day…so yes forgive me.

For whatever reason though, I still prefer walking through Hongdae then Insadong….

Crowd

There was a lot more people than last year. Why?!? More protest last year (yes there is always a protest near city hall).

OR…maybe because the weather this time around was a lot more friendly.

Last year was just plain cold. Like literally piercing against my skin. So I don’t blame people for not wanting to go out. This time around? Weather was much more manageable…around 10 degrees? Can tell that our good friend Spring was coming!

Yes sir!!

Market!

Saw a flea market. Was full of girl stuff.

Spent about 5 minutes here.

Then I left.

Random Toys

Alleyway full of figurines. They didn’t want people taking pictures but because I am such a hardcore bad ass I took one anyways. I wonder if these are real…maybe that’s why they don’t want people taking pictures and posting them up….

Some illegal shit going on is what I am thinking.

Calligraphy

And then saw this guy do some calligraphy! I can read some of it too…and not because I can read Korea..it’s because some of it in Chinese.

I would have bought one from him. But. I have no where to hang this in my place. I live in a small apartment.
