Jeonju Trip (Part 8): Here We Go Again
This is the mini bus that took us from Seoul to Jeonju. Since not many students participated in the trip, the school provided this mini bus to serve our trip--which turned out to be quite okay.
But...this signboard got my attention!! I just realized that there was this "Foreign Tourist on Board" sign posted on the front window of the bus.
Gosh...it felt like this was nothing more than "BABY ON BOARD" sign!!!
I mean...was this really necessary???^-^
what do you think?
anyway...that's not important. What matters then was that...we safely arrived in Jeonju and had fun exploring the Hanok Village.
During free-time, I got a chance to explore again parts of the village and ended up in this Teddy Bear shop.
*Gee....my trousers (baji -바지)....these were too baggy for me!!!
Taking a group photo at Gyeonggijeon area where the Jeondong Cathedral was visible.
Dubbed to be a famous spot for picture.
Attentively listening while taking pictures of the stone-epitaph erected right in front of the Gyeonggijeon (Royal Shrine). "Get off/Un-mount from your horse" line was carved on this stone to tell any visitors or anyone visiting the shrine to respect the place.
The stone was suspended on two statues of lion and lioness. Judged from their 'rears', it is obvious that the right one was indeed that of the female one.:)
From the front facade of the stone. I put this on this blog so as to make me remember what the guide told us.
The gate to the Shrine. Again and again..this is the typical architectural Korean gate to any shrine or any historical sites that anyone can see across the country.
*The inside facade.
