CONTINUATION OF SUNDAY IN KOREA – We are now into Sunday afternoon. After the church services we went our separate ways. I will be shopping for a new pair of shoes. Read chapter 45 for the reason I now need some new shoes.
Most of the citizens of South Korea in 1948 considered themselves practicing Buddhism.
Little did I know as I left Korea in early 1949 that I would ever come back. Fate would not have it. More about the Korean War later. I was looking forward to Occupation Duty on the Northern Island of Japan – Hokkaido.
Read the left side first then the right side.
We continue with a week-end off duty and visiting the city of Seoul. The pictures and comments under them speak for themselves but there will occasionally be comments 70 years after the tour in pre Korean War tour of duty.
This little girl was wandering around like she was lost but probably was doing some errands for her mother and was slow walking it.
Most citizens got their news about what was going on using the sidewalk news postings.
After worship services we all go our different direction. The afternoon I decided to visit the busy area of town where most of the well-to-do people shopped. I was looking for a new pair of shoes. I wore a perfectly good pair of GI shoes to worship. In Korea you take your shoes at the entrance. I stayed around a little longer than the others to talk to Brother Dong and when I got back to get my shoes someone had left me their ragged shoes and took my good shoes. Bro. Dong was very apologetic and said that during the sermon he had noticed a fellow that had never been there before come in and stay awhile and then leave early.
Part two of this Sunday afternoon will be covered in Chapter 46.
