16-19 April 2013
We took a quick trip to South Korea this week. Our main purpose was naturally to eat a lot of Korean food but we also enjoyed visiting the historic town of Gyeongju, the former capitol of the ancient Silla kingdom.
First, the food.
In Gyeongju we finally found cherry blossoms!
And we found a lot of friendly Korean ladies with big hats.
Photos from Gyeongju…
Later we walked up to the Seokguram Grotto. The grotto houses a beautiful seated buddha in white granite (no photos!). Here is the entrance to the grotto and a few pictures from the surroundings.
