Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. A holiday here today, so I am using the time for final exam prep, and packing for home. D-Day is June 21st, and I am more than a little excited. Today, I want to take you on a little tour of some of my more colorful experiences here in Korea.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog.
Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.
The Twitter hash tag for Travel Photo Thursday is #TPThursday.

Everyday in the heart of Seoul’s downtown you can experience a re-enactment of the “Changing of the Guard”. Lots of rich color, and a perfect introduction to Korean traditional “court” attire.
