Walkabout: Seoul, Korea


google image

The topography of Korea is 70% mountainous and only 30% consists of lowlands and plains. During my week-long visit in Seoul I made day trips to Daegu by high speed train and Gwangju by air.  I saw mountains from the air and en route on the train.  I was delighted to see snow covered peaks the last two days in Seoul.  I especially like the sight of the moutains that surround Seoul because they frame that metropolis in a natural context, otherwise it’s skyescrapers, roadways, mega underground walkways, shopping complexes above and below ground and an immense population.

Enjoy the slideshow.
