Tough challenge

[Seoul, Korea]
Although this situation might look somehow dramatic, this picture was taken out of the context as the parent was standing just out of this frame, trying to convince this little boy to keep smiling, as there were family photo session ongoing.

Tree Energy

[Seoul, Korea]
Once I’ve noticed this older man in one of Seoul’s parks, first thought was that he must be “tree energy drainer”, as he was standing still like this for a longer time. Even though it might sound funny, try to google “tree energy” – plenty of people can feel it, actually. Have you ever tried?

38th parallel north

[DMZ, Korea]
Vista point at Korean DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) between North and South.
Korean DMZ is a 4km wide strip of land between North and South Korea, crossing the 38th paralel north and serving as buffer area.
This is the most heavily militarized border in the world.

This spyglass was pointed towards North Korean fake-city: nice attempt to convince tourists that North Korea is wealthy and well prospering land of happiness.

Xiangqi is commonly called Chinese chess, in English. Far from being similar to what I knew as chess.

Sunrise Peak grassland

[Jeju Island, Korea]
This picture was taken from the Sunrise Peak (Seongsan Ilchubong) grasslands, towards town of Songsan-ri.
Sunrise Peak is a volcanic crater located on Jeju Island – Korean’s favourites honeymoon destination. Its name comes from the fact, that as located on the easternmost side of island, this is the first place to meet sunrise on Jeju.
