On our way to the Gyeongbokgung Palace you have to walk through a big street – and in the middle of the street are different statues, but more importantly water fountains.
As it was a hot day, lots of children were playing in the water fountains.
As always, children are attracted to water, and it was great fun for us, to watch them play.
We also managed to take some other pictures…
… Some in front of different statutes, including Confucius…
… Other statues are from Korean kings and emperors.
All in all a nice walk to the palace, a little like walking through the Pall Mall in London, but with a different scenery.

Er… that’s not Confucius, it’s actually an Admiral from the Korean Navy some 100-200 years ago.
Thanks for pointing this out – I was trying to find out more info online (and clearly failed!) as my guide book lacked this detail too!
