Garden Of Morning Calm, Sang-Myun, South Korea

December 24, 2013 by  

Garden Of Morning Calm, Sang-Myun, South Korea, nch was on the way. I was impressed to see an almost-everything-on-table being vegan. That quite made my day! I made a mental note of SsamBaap(쌈밥) restaurants for future reference. I am quite tired of looking at BibimBaap as a primary vegan option in Korea…

After a sumptuous lunch, it was a short trip to the Garden. Being spring these days the theme was tulips! There are various gardens and quite large to walk the whole place in about 2 hours that I was there.I have never seen tulips in so many colours and hues before.

Peace-listening my camera “click”. After ages, I went somewhere with the sole purpose of clicking pictures. How therapeutical! How alive I felt! I am sure to join in for more picture taking trips now after the first step!

As an aside, I tried searching for the poem by Tagore mentioning “Land of Morning Calm”. All I could find were lines from “Lamp of the East”(1929) associating Tagore with Korea. Looks like middle school students get to study this poem in Korea.

In the golden age of Asia
Korea was one of its lamp-bearers
And that lamp is waiting to be lighted once again
For the illumination in the East.
