Haming for the Camera - Sokcho, South Korea

One warm spring afternoon I was out exploring the neighborhood where I was staying in Sokocho. An elementary school was near-by... the bell rang, and the children flooded the street. At first the children were afraid of me; but when they realize I was harmless they surrounded me and wanted to talk to me, they were so curious. They knew a little English (they study English in school) and I know a few words in Korean -- I had a blast interacting with them. The children are extremely well behaved and very respectful of adults. Interesting note: In general there are no parents accompanying the children on there way home -- the streets are safe!
