(After the last sketchcrawl two foreigners who work here in Korea sent mails with messages to sketch with Seoul Urban Sketchers.

I was walking from Jongno 5-ga street to Jongno 1-ga. Though the weather was still cold, the bunches of colorful flower caught my eye. I walked into the narrow alley. The shop had no space but was attached on wall of the building. A nice looking old man kept carrying flower from other place to display. 'What are you doing?" he asked. "I'm drawing your beautiful shop." I replied. Fragrance of small shop spreaded all around the streets.
I saw these trees on pots which were decorated with Korean National flags. When I passed the place by bus I thought they're national flower, the hibiscus, Mugunghwa. The pots located in front of Samilmun of Seoul Tapgol Park, where the Statement of Independence was announced on March 1st, 1919.

Jongno streets have been carrying important roles in political, economical, social sides in Seoul since Lee Dynasty. The streets keep developing endlessly preserving tradition and accepting changes. I love Jongno!

Hannam Saemal Cafe, which was the first completed Hangang viewing cafe, and is the ideal place to rest on a river walk. The cafe building is four-stories high with public spaces on the first two floors and the cafe itself on the third and fourth floors, the latter of which is an indoor viewing deck affording wonderful views of the Han River, Hannamdaegyo Bridge and Namsan Mountain.
The weather was so good, and I sketched a lot of attractive sceneries around the cafe here and there excitingly. Welcome to new participants and hope to continue seeing!
