Namdaemun gate or Sungnyemun gate, one of the last gates of the former wall of early Seoul, burned on Monday night. Tragically so because it was one of the very few remaining wooden structures in Korea that had not been destroyed during the Korean War. The gate was over 610 years old, of course refurbished recently but old. The stone base is supposedly still intact but the excellent wooden temple like building on the top of the gate is gutted and will probably need to be torn completely down to be repaired. Arson was the cause and the alleged perpetrator has been caught but the gate is gone. Today they were walling it off and starting reconstruction already. Just a few short months ago the gate had been re-opened to allow people to pass through it. And the changing of the guard ceremony had been reinstated within the last few years as well, a great favorite with locals and tourists. This gate was National Treasure #1. It was in the midst of a traffic flow but I always looked forward to riding the bus into town and seeing the gate. I will miss it greatly and I'm not even Korean. Koreans love their monuments and history. A large wreath has been placed outside the newly erected fence and people are making pilgrimages to it to take photos and expressed their grief. There are also many complaints about the fence and how it keeps people from seeing the destroyed gate. President-Elect Lee has proposed opening a fund so that people can contribute to the reconstruction of the gate. The gate will be reconstructed with city/state funds but he feels that people will feel even more a part of the process if they donate funds. He's probably right but on the other hand some Koreans are saying it's his fault because as Mayor of Seoul, he's the one who opened the gate so people could walk through it. can't win for trying.
The row of five
Too dark? Maybe just a little. Later - actually, the version you see here is a slightly lightened version. I liked the row of puffy clouds just above the rooftops. Have to dash out in ten minutes for my volunteer shift, after which I want to go and see if I can find the Mute Swan (a rarity in Calgary). And then I have to go shopping for a new alarm clock - mine didn't work this morning - have had it quite a few years. See ya later!
I am so happy - I took a better look at the buttons for lowering my car windows and discovered a small lever, which I decided to push over to the right. Never used this before. Anyway, my front passenger window went DOWN - yay! Had been wondering how much it was going to cost me to have it repaired, as I do need to be able to roll the far window down when I'm birding the backroads. Maybe I caught this lever somehow a few weeks ago. Such a relief!
