When I was in Busan, I paid a visit to Gyeongju, which is the former capital of the Silla Empire ( ) and about an hour from Busan. It is filled with ancient burial mounds and amazing temples. I saw a lot of amazing stuff but, sadly, lost my camera bag which had my memory card, so I only have a few photos.
The first set is from this strange small-town proto-worlds-fair event that was going on called the Gyeongju World Culture Expo. It was bizarre.
And here are some photos from around town. Geyeongju felt very different from Seoul; it seemed that "the miracle on The Han" had missed this small town.
