A group of elderly men was milling about where park benches had been placed. When I approached them, I found that they had all placed a Go board on the bench. They were playing Go with other like-minded people. In Seoul, Go may not be played in a Go hall, but under the open sky.

An old man wearing a hat and glasses was one of those playing Go in the park. The old man was staring at the Go board and fiddling with the Go stones in a container. His mouth was halfway full, so he was probably thinking of his next move.
