A Purple/Pora Hanbok Just for Me

Greetings from Jincheon City! I got to wear a pora (or purple) hanbok, the traditional Korean dress in Cheongju City last week. Isn't it pretty? I saw it in the hanbok store when we walked in and fell in love with the hand-embroidered butterflies and the purple ribbon. I mentioned that my favorite color is purple and I got to wear it! I think I could pass for a Korean girl?

There are so many beautiful yellow and purple flowers here that I've been taking close-up shots left and right. With all the flowers, food and sights, I have a total of over 700 photos in just six days. Will my 2GB memory card be enough? Will I be able to choose a few as my favorite shots? Will I ever tire of taking shots of yellow and purple flowers? (Wait for the flowers in my next post... or should I start another blog just for my Korean adventures?)

You can pass for a Koreana with the bright purple ribbons!

More pixs ha? And more stories to come for sure...

Hi Don! Thanks for dropping by. I'll copy you in my photo emails from Korea. It's beautiful here... and I don't know how to start writing since it's sensory overload for me!

BTW, all set for your book launch in June? (I'll be out early July - I hope I won't miss your big day!)
