Today was another dull, overcast day with high level pollution. Not a day to spend outside, so Steve and I went to the (free!) National Museum while Simeon was at school. This is the museum that backs up onto the base.
|This picture was taken on an earlier visit when the sky was not so gray.|
|We got separated a couple times and had to use text messages of find each other in this large atrium.|
The museum focuses on Korean art and artifacts. I wished I knew more Korean history than the mid-twentieth c war, but it was still interesting. One thing I did learn was that Japan invaded in 1904, not in the 1930s as I assumed.
|Labels were mostly in Korean so I can't tell you more about this dragon head.|
|The Buddhist art exhibit made me spend a few minutes in prayer for adherents.|
|This pottery looked an awful lot like the stuff I saw on the pottery tour. If I lived here, I would definitely want something larger than my little serving bowls.|
