Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Ajuma

Ajuma is the formal term for Korean women.  But Ajuma is more than a term.  Ajuma controls the finances and holds a powerful position in the family, yet dutifully spends holidays at her mother-in-laws cooking and cleaning non-stop.  Ajuma feels entitled, as she should.

I took this picture (a reflection off a bus) while waiting for Buddha's Birthday parade in Seoul in 2010.  The black and white transformation, as well as the vignette effect remove color and other distractions from the picture.
