Historic Gyeongju

While in Korea, we checked out the historic sites of Gyeongju, which include ancient tombs as shown below. I tried to figure out why, after years of poverty, occupation, war and such, nobody raided these! We went into one, and there was gold in there, I don't get it.There were lots of them!Then again, they were protected by angry stylish warriors with moobs,And strangely, by skateboarders with nunchucksWe enjoyed the historic sites although our comprehension was limited. This is Cheomseongdae, used by 7th century Koreans to view the stars.This giant bells signals that it's time to eat.
If you don't like street pickles,there are plenty of other street vegetable options as well.
