Morning Calm and Night Fantastic

Morning calm is a great experience anytime of year, but in January when the lights are on it is out of this world.

More than 1 million lights illuminate the whole garden, it seems an equal number of people too so do go early.

Have Yourself a Korean Little Christmas

IMG_1782Merry Christmas from Korea! Besides a few twinkling roundabout decorations and lights hanging from windows of major shopping malls, Ulsan unfortunately doesn’t offer much in the way of holiday spirit. However, Busan is a whole different story!


Jung Gwang Sa Decorated for the New Year

As I drove past my favorite temple in  Mugeo-dong, Ulsan last week and I noticed that it was decorated with many lanterns and banners. I would suspect that this would be for the upcoming new year. I looked around for the director, whom I met during this year’s Buddha’s Birthday festivities, but he was not in. At any rate, this temple is always such a beautiful place to visit and just walk around. Sadly, last night it was a little on the cold side. At any rate, I got a few shots and ran back to my warm car and headed home.


Seoul Lantern Festival - coming soon

Author's note: a version of this article is published in the November 2010 issue of the Groove.

In case you needed an excuse to head to Cheonggyecheon, here's an excellent one. The 2nd annual Seoul Lantern Festival (서울 세계등축제) will host dozens of gorgeous lanterns lighting up Cheonggyecheon. Go for the opening ceremony on the 5th if you want, or head down anytime to appreciate the lights. Though the lanterns will be up day and night, head there in the evening to catch them looking their best.
