Traditional Korean Folk Village: Photos

Chung and I had a nice day at the Korean Folk Village: a living museum located near Suwon. For 13,000W I learned about traditional Korean life and culture, petted a horse and tried an old fashioned seesaw. Enjoy the photos. The freshly fallen snow was beautiful:

Hi Eva! Your comments section was looking lonely, so I thought I'd drop a line or three. Gald to see you feeling better--Sickness sux!!! I have been sick for probably a month out of the 5 months I've been here. And deathly ill for about a week of that. I should have been hospitalized, but damn if I was going to miss a day of work during my first 2 months.

Hopefully, spring will get here fast. I'm definitely a beach person. All this snow is for the penguins..err, birds.

Hey John, not sick! I just went for a yearly check-up.

Aren't you a knight in shining armor. Your e-mail was amazing. Thank you. I smiled about it as I ate dwenjang jiggae and read the newspaper at a restaurant.

Hope you're having a good weekend. I'm trying to; I made plans to climb a mountain tomorrow.

Will write soon,

You are nuts to be climbing mountains in the middle of winter, or are you practicing for an assault on Mt. Everest? I've done all I can to postpone my boss from dragging my up some mountain. His kids would rather go to the beach as well. Maybe we can compromise and hike up sand dunes, that's if they have them here in South Korea. Well, I'm gonna get some sleep, the neighbors took their yapping dog and screaming kids away for the weekend. So, 8-12 hours of comatose state-like bliss, here I come.

The sun was out. It wasn't that cold! Actually I removed my coat and hiked most of the mountain in only a sweater.

Lots of zzzzzzzzzzzzzz's to you.

Hi Eva,

I used to have a horse named "Mr. J" after me. He looked exactly like the horse in your picture and I was frightened of him. I also had a worse named "Josh" after me. I never told you that because there was never the right moment. I really miss you.
