A short story of my previous Saturday
I was selected to participate in this tour, Hanyang city wall. Being selected is very amazing especially in a foreign country I was kind of proud of myself, So I screenshot the direction and waited for March 16th
I couldn't find the Exit 9 but I came out anyway and I asked a beautiful Korean lady how I can go to Doseong Museum, I explained to her we are going to watch the Hanyang city wall today and she said it used to be more than 18 km and at present, a 12 km section of the wall is designated as Historic Site and is protected accordingly, along with the gates, water gates, and signal fire mounds. Then she showed me the way then I saw this gate and I became happy that I'm finding the way because it was getting late...
Thinking of how people could this great job at that time I found myself in front of the museum.
There I was kindly welcomed ... there we listened to dear Mrs. Suzanna Samstag Oh who was telling the interesting history of the wall ... and answering lots of questions about the wall: When it was made, Where, Why by Whom and How .. there were lots of names that I couldn't keep in my mind. So I recorded some parts. and after each slide, there was this energetic voice behind me: "next slide?" :)) <3 Mrs.Suzanna's cute and lovely daughter :) I could tell she had the American accent from Mrs. Suzanna and that the Korean gene is very strong ;) ...
It was great. She enthusiastically was telling the story of a legacy with layers of history over 600 Years and I was thinking I will touch these layers. After hearing the great stories we were divided into groups to visit the wall. We were with dear Suzanna <3 and could directly hear the rest of the story by the wall itself.
