Mind open. Museum closed.

A typical Sunday afternoon in Insadong, an eclectic area of art galleries and tea houses. We went there to go to the Museum of Korean Buddhist Art, which was closed despite a sign declaring "Opening Hours" from 10 til 6. Thinking this to be a test cooked up by the abbot/ curator, we waited outside the door for a few hours, just like Kwai Chang Caine would've done. Though we ultimately failed in this ordeal, we rebounded in the non-permanence of the Starbucks across the street.
