Picture pages

Here I have decided not to cover a certain subject, but just fill up with typical Korean images of all sorts, nature, arts, architecture, scenery, people, - everything - -

First a series of pictures from within the Changdokkung Palace grounds in Seoul.
In the park behind the palace you will find "Pivon", - the "Secret Garden" -, which is considered the most beautiful garden in Korea - -
