As we were driving to the Fortress, school was getting out and kids where everywhere. Every school here has a uniform dress code for the students; which is why we notice there aren't a whole lot of sub-cultures. Most koreans (especially the younger ones) dress a bit preppy and are always clean cut. You don't really see the groups we see in the states (urban, goths, hip hop, etc.)
Our first glance of the Fortress
Getting prepped for the climb...
Lots of steps! Almost to the top!
If I haven't said it before; Korea is just one big sea of APARTMENTS!!
Cute old men just chit chatting...or apparently just observing the dirt on the ground :)
In so many places, you will find Koreans "exercising". You don't see them running or going to gyms (I've only seen one), but they will be in parks or sidewalks where there are bars or free standing elipticals for locals to stretch or do cardio. They are everywhere and you will always see them being used. Here this cute lady is doing some serious stretching!!
I was pretending to take another picture of the Fortress, but I really wanted another shot of this lady :) Can you see her on the bottom right? You can click on the picture to enlarge it I think. She is wearing her mask which a ton of Koreans where cause of the Yellow Dust pollution and the random stink that is so apparent here. Turn a corner on a side walk and the sweet aroma of who knows what follows you home!!
Everything was in bloom!
