Geonju town

Geonju is quite a massive a modern town despite the guide books attempts to tell you about its traditions
It's quite strange being somewhere this size having been in Geochang for so long. This is simply a city comparable in size to any of the british ones bar London.
it still manages to hold some traditional elements even in the town centre, there is even a traditional meeting place in the middle of the hustle and bussle
it occurs to me that the photos dont really show the hand painted buildings in all their beauty but there all differently decorated with this kind of style. It depends upon which king made them.
Korea's history is evident everywhere.
