after a lovely field trip last week with my favorite class,
it was off to the ROK’s former capital, gyeongju, to see the cherry blossoms in full force before they transformed into the florescent green that lines the streets today.
we rented bikes.
and let me tell you, cruisers are not good for going up hills against the wind. so we took frequent breaks.
slowly we made our way.
and there were lots of lovely things to see.
like this field of yellow flowers packed with Korean families taking portraits. but in a field this crowded, how could you get a clean background?
the cherry blossoms were abundant, as promised.
i liked this place, especially.
on the way back to town, i spied on these old men, who had inexplicably set up a table for lunch under a bridge.
