Photo Stop: Bukchon Hanok Village

By Mustachio @mustachio2011
Hanok. Ha-what? A traditional Korean house. There are only two hanok villages in Seoul that Google has revealed to me: Bukchon and Namsangol.
Before leaving Seoul Guesthouse, where we stayed for two nights, we took a walk thru Bukchon hanok village, a stone's throw away from the guesthouse...okay, maybe a long and strong throw.

Bukchon is located between the two palace complexes: Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung. If you don't believe me and just have to see for yourself, here's a map of Bukchon.
