A Day In Pictures (PHOTOGRAPHY)
I spoke to the Deputy Mayor of Seoul today, who also happens to be the city's Chief Designer(and holds a PH.D in his field). He told me about a very impressive and comprehensive plan that amounts to a massive makeover for Seoul. The picture below reveals how important and imminent those plans are. The picture below is the front page at a newsstand at an arbitrary subway stop. You can see that part of Gwanghamun is being redesigned to be more walkable. These developments start on Saturday, and are part of - as I say - an exciting and comprehensive project.
This is my interpreter, Marianne. She has done a fantastic job - both yesterday and today. She's going to John Hopkins University to do a Ph.D in nutrition.
