Day 3: "The Castle", Hwajinpo Beach, South Korea

This small stone villa perched among fragrant pine trees is about as close as most people can get to North Korea, in more than one way. It is only a few kilometres away from the border, and it was the childhood home of the boy who grew up to become the leader of the North.

Kim Jong Il was six years old when his father, North Korea founder Kim Il Sung, took ownership of the house known as “The Castle” near scenic Hwajinpo Beach. When the Korean War ended in 1953, the border between the Koreas was redrawn, and the villa wound up in the South.

(quoted from this site:

rokdrop.com/2009/01/27/places-in-korea-kim-jong-ils-childhood-home-in-hwajinpo/)

It has an amazing view of the mountains leading to the border and on the other side a beautiful beach.

This shirt is a favorite vintage find I acquired years ago and the vibrant colors remind me so much of Etro paisley prints. Coincidentally these colors are in tune with the strong vibrant colors for SS2011 inspired by 70's YSL.

andre - like M'c Kenneth your look explanations are really captivating me! like to know you actually think about that stuff when you travel is great - i still want to visit all of the places i studied in history in secondary college and university, i.e. vietnam, russia, china etc.

also my friend just got back from North Korea and hearing about that holiday was VERY interesting. No phones allowed, all photos have to be approved, need to be accompanied by guides everywhere you go, need to be briefed for hours before you enter the country, everything is checked (like any anti north korea material would probably get you murdered). but my friend said it was very interesting and worth while.

great photo, great outfit and great setting. like i take photos in my backyard and around my hood (gangsta for area haha), but you just casually travel the world to take your photos - i'm v.jealous!

shirt rocks and of course it's perfect on you, like everything you wear

hypee (would also give heart but it's gone for the day)
