I visited Imjingak on Parents' Day in May with Min Young and her grandparents. We were so close to visit the DMZ but we missed the last bus from Paju. Not our luck I guess. Next time when I return to Korea, I will visit with Min Young.
We had lunch at nearby temple before reaching Imjingak.
The restaurants served vegetables gathered from the mountains.
Nice right? Although it is so sunny but the temperature is cool.
Min Young's grandparents and Min Young.
Mushroom and vegetables jjigae
Nokdu jeon (Green bean pancake). The taste? I have never tasted
one before, a bit different than normal but very delicious. Two thumbs
sanchae banchan - mountain vegetables side dishes

We visited Imjingak after lunch. That red bus goes for DMZ
Good move, the website for Paju right on the bus.

Behind us are the well wishes ribbon for North Koreans and
South Koreans during Korean War.
The Bridge of Freedom
The flower in spring
The barb wire and behind those mountains is North Korea.
Touring train around Imjingak.
Korean Memorial for US soldiers and countries
assisting Korea during Korean War.
I don't know what G&G means. Any guess?
Displays of equipments used during Korean War.
No admission fee.
I couldn't meet the real one. This is the least I could do with
a North Korean soldier.
We walked to Imjingak Plaza and walked up towards
the observation deck, on the top left side.
Min Young with her grandmother.
The owner of this coffee shop probably likes the movie starring
Keanu Reeves - A walk in the clouds.
The owner must be a close friend of Hyun Bin
too, cause the flower read from the movie actor
Hyun Bin. 영화 배우 현빈
Military fashion the DMZ way.

The view from top.
The sign tells it all.
