Jongmyo: 600 Years of Ceremonies

Jongmyo is a UNESCO World Heritage site, found in the heart of Seoul.
For years I would wander through the ground, enjoying the tranquility. This year, the replay of the Confucian ceremonies took me back to the 15th century, as Joseon kings came to reflect on ancestor glories, to invite past kings and queens to share a cup of wine and some food.. One must visit Jongmyo to experience memories of a 600-year dynasty. Visit my blog for more pictures and description.

I Love You Seoul

I felt your love for the first time in spring when Seoul was covered in fresh green
I felt your love on a hot summers day when Seouls sky was piercing blue
I felt your love when the trees along the streets of Seoul turned an autumnal hue
I felt your love when wintertime snow blankets Seoul in its white wonder
I will fall in love with you again in the morning when all is once more new
I will fall in love with you on days when the daylight shines upon the city
I will fall in love with you when the sun sets as the sky turns red and yellow
I will fall deeply in love with you when the stars twinkle brightly in the pitch black sky

Lots of heart… lots of love from and for SEOUL
have a great summer everyone!
