New Years Day Korean Style

New Years morning I got up early and met my friend Seiphemo to see the sunrise on a new year in Korea.

We were told that people do this, so we went to a hill close to a temple. We joined a group of around twenty people who were as foolish as we were to brave the freezing weather.

As the sun rose over the horizon, some of the old people bowed as if to Buddha, others began prayers to Jesus.  The kids began began to take pictures with their camera phones. I guess it was a good representation of the change that is happening here.
