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 . . .
