Bulguksa – A Postcard Pack

 In the summer of 2010, my friend Minjae went home to South Korea for a few months, during which time she visited Bulguksa Buddhist Temple. Knowing my love of postcards, she bought me a pack of 15, writing that it was her “favourite place in Korea”. Although 14 of these aren’t written on, on the fifteenth, Minjae reminds me of many of our great university memories together. This was a wonderful gift with some outstandingly pretty pictures!

A Korean Funeral

KoreaFuneralThis weird card  comes from Cindy in South Korea who chose it to add to my awful postcards challenge! It certainly is odd, a ‘comical’ traditional funeral procession! She tells me that she lives in Munsan, 7km from the demilitarised zone and that her favourite girls names are Antonia, Talitha, Lorelei and Fiona and that for boys she likes Willian Aiden Calum and Etienne. Very cool! Awesome card!
