South Korea

I was in Seoul, S. Korea, in 1998, on a telecommunications project.  

These are scenes from a few of the areas I had the opportunity to visit.

This is a typical market scene in Seoul.

Shown here are examples of the many bargains in sports clothing available here.

Another crowded market scene in Seoul.

 These markets are popular with residents and foreigners, alike.

Another area in the market.  Both food and clothing are available.

Seoul is a busy modern metropolis, with many high-rise office buildings and hotels.

This beautiful lady is wearing a traditional wedding dress in a theme park in Seoul.

This is a fine example of traditional Korean rural architecture.
