The Tour Guide

I was quite thrilled to see even the tour guides in their Hanboks. They are beautiful costumes and look so beautiful on the girls.

Her English was quite good, though I had cause to smile over some slight errors. Korean's do have problems with the "r" sound, which resulted in some amusement. One student spoke about the "looster" in the hen house, and the guide above, spoke of the walkway to the palace. The King walked in the middle, the civil servants on the right hand side, and the military on the "reft".

The information though was most interesting and I was not keen to leave, but I had wanted much more to see the re-enactment of the King's banquet.

Many asians have problems with the R sound. Just imagine a game of lugby in NZ?


Are you home yet?
