We've been on the lookout for shoes for quite some time. Not for myself, but for Katrina. She wanted to get a pair of warmer shoes instead of slip-ons since it is indeed winter time. So, we headed to Co-Ex Mall. Epic FAIL! At least in terms of looking for shoes. However, before we left, I did some poking around on the internet and found Bongeunsa Temple very close to get to. It was about a two minute walk once you get out of the mall. It was nice to go to a temple seeing as how we haven't been to one in quite some time. The highlight - a giant stone buddha and a monk chit chatting on what appeared to be his smart phone; I guess living a simple life has taken on a new meaning in the 21st century. Anyway, apologies for the delay.
(Fish eye lens again. It captures so much more in a photo. It is close to a 180 degree shot of the plaza where the statue stood.)
(The ribbons began at the entrance of the temple and ran to the picture above which was a shrine in the heart of the temple. This is Katrina and I as we are leaving.)
(2012 - the Year of the Dragon. I wonder if the Chinese New Year predicts an apocalypse in 2012???)
