What a tragedy…
Last night some ajosshi bum burned down Namdaemun, the 600 year old wooden gate which marked the south border of the old city.
This one was snatched from the Korea Herald website.
Here’s a historical photo tribute
which links to what are possibly the most striking shots
coming from a waegookin whose flickr link I’ve posted below
Namdaemun Fire February 10, 2008
A huge loss for the nation…
They say it will take three years to reconstruct…
another soon to be replica.
