Life in the ROK

West goes East: The lives and adventures of a Californian couple living in Seoul

Sunday, April 29, 2007

Today I saw a reenactment of Kong Jeongjo's royal procession that dates back to the Chosun Dynasty in Korea (1392-1627). When the king traveled he always had a procession of around 1000 people with him and sometimes many more. The top picture shows the procession traveling over the Han river on a pontoon bridge which is how they would have crossed the river in the old days too.....It is a lot easier now that Seoul has about 20 permanent bridges that crisscross the Han.
