Around Hanok Village (Geonju)

These photo's are a few weeks old now but my visit to Hanok village was quite interesting. Hanok is a traditional Korean house and it is very much like a living museum at the village
In these pictures is a tribute to the Joseon kings of Korea and what they used in their lifestyles.
Here children are being shown how to drink tea traditionally (apart from the big modern kettle)

Either my Korean is getting better or that sign has English on it.
The walls and buildings may have been restored but I am assured this is what it always looked like.
