PhotoStory 0007: Fishing with birds in Yangchou, China

Photos taken 2007-01-17, (Jan. 17th) at the river close to Yangchou ( utside Gui-Lin) in China.

I got a suggestion to find a photo where I got involved with some local traditions - and most times I did something like that - I was to busy to ask someone to take photo of me - so I post some more touristy ones...

I this aria they used to use birds for fishing - and as we were standing there wathing the riverlife and nice view (actually the mountains in the top photo is the same view as the motive used for the 20 yuan money note in China )


- this old man crossed the river ..


- comes up to us and -

- and imidiately put on me the hat - and the stick with the birds on... - so there I was - all ready to go fishing ;)


to bad the sun was against the camera - so you cant really se my face...

PhotoStory 0006: Gyeongbok-gung Palace in Seoul, South Korea


Photos taken 2007-01-08, (Jan. 8th) at the Gyeongbok-gung Palace in Seoul, South Korea

The name of the palace, Gyeongbokgung, translates in English as "Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven."

Wikipedias article about this palace will be more detailed than my decribtion.



I'll posted a row of photos from outside, guards changes, inside, some details and from the Korean Folk Museum just on the outskirt.

Its a long time since I was there now - and to be frank I dont remember that much details - and I was walking around here with no guiding or knowlege before I went there, - but still it was a very plessent trip and experience - even it was freecing cold :-)
