Another DMZ picture

Posted in Korea at 3:53 pm by catsinboxes

Inside a building in the DMZ:  The table by the lefthand guard marks the line between North and South Korea. The guard standing by the back door (into North Korea) is South Korean. I’m still sorting out how they divide the buildings!  Fun fact, I was able to stand on North Korea’s side of the room, so now I’ve been “in” North Korea!

Photo of the day

In the DMZ: the three men in the foreground are South Korean soldiers. You can see one North Korean soldier standing on the steps of the large building. (That’s in North Korea; the north-south line cuts the blue buildings in half. You can actually see the line running between the buildings in this picture.)

A Fun Picture

I’ll be posting the rest of the Gyeongbokgung pictures soon, but I thought I’d add this one for fun.

Are you laughing?  I love the glasses.  From Sun Young’s explanation, Paul George von Mollendorf was the first foreign diplomatic adviser to the Joseon Dynasty.  I admire the man, takes a lot to wear that, but I couldn’t resist posting the picture . . .
