Thursday has arrived, and it’s time for TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY. My new teaching semester began yesterday. Since this is the beginning of the school year there are lots of freshman wandering the halls looking totally lost.
To join in the 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 remember to leave a comment after you link. Finally, if you have a few moments, visit the others who have linked. Perhaps you can give them a tweet, a stumble, or a comment on their TRAVEL PHOTO THURSDAY.
If you do tweet a shot, please use the hashtag #TPThursday.
This isn’t a shot of my lost students, but was taken in Korea. I took this photo last year at the Hwaseong Cultural Festival in Suwon, Korea. Suwon’s claim to fame is the Hwaseong Fortress, a world UNESCO site. This was the 47th year for the parade, and one of the highlights is a re-enactment of King Jeongio’s royal pilgrimage to the shrine of Crown Prince Sado, 210 years ago. The parade is huge, with thousands of Koreans dressed in the traditional costumes of the day. I loved the hat!
To find out more about the fortress and the festival visit the links below. Hwaseong fortress is open everyday. For hours of operation, history, and what’s happening click on either of these links.
This is a great way to spend a day in Korea, and budget travelers will love the fact that it’s FREE!
