You may have heard that we had a record-breaking snowfall early on Monday. It was sweet.
Modern comedy is too fast paced. Nobody appreciates a really delicious awkward pause anymore.
And because I love snow, I went out in the snow to take some pictures. Jongmyo Shrine and Changgyeonggung were my destinations, and it was great. I'm going to write this post quickly, so please pardon lack of organizational coherence, etc.. If it really bugs you, well, you got what you paid for, didn't you?
This was built in a snowpile in myeongdong.
Palace and grounds.
Jongmyo Shrine and Grounds
liked the snow pattern on the roof here
tracking across fresh snow is such a joy. I couldn't even tell you why.
liked this wonky tree. cool-shaped branches
everybody was out there with their cameras, taking pictures of everything.
The ajosshi playground in front of jongmyo shrine.
The fresh snow was deep.
and wet, later.
barely felt like Seoul.
All around myeongdong the snow had been scraped and broom-brushed (can you believe people use brooms to clear snow in Korea? And nobody has a proper snow shovel.
Chunggyecheon at night always makes me happy.
