The real Seoul

 While it is tempting to take photos of individual buildings and exceptional streetscapes like the newly created greenway through downtown Seoul, this isn't the real city.  The real city is a montage of ordinary buildings covered in signs that would never make it through Vancouver's sign by-law review.  The place is a riot of colour and signage, both in the day time and night time. with street vendors and markets throughout the city.  Here are just a few examples of what most of Seoul really looks like, based on my very limited travels.
