Night scene at Insadong. Seoul, Korea.

18th Oct 2019 (2nd Day in Seoul) Insadong The sun goes down quite fast in Seoul. It was around 630 pm as we made our way to Insadong, and already the sky got pretty dark. Halfway there, we saw a Shake Shack burger joint where we almost had dinner in, if it were not for […]

03rd September 2019 – An Update

Just like that, the Lunar 7th Month aka “The Month of the Hungry Ghosts” is over. As I get older, like every almost every other festivals, a lot of its significance have been lost on me.
