the first ascentSeptember 13, 2006
Today was my first venture up a mountain this time around in Korea, Bukhan-san. I went with Dominica’s first cousin, Seong-yeol (who i just call “hyoung” = older brother) and two of his workers from his spaghetti restaurant, Sorrentos, who just call me, “Matty-hyoung.” I gotta say, i like the custom. it warms my heart everytime I hear them call it out.
Below are some photos from along the way…and after. You can see a whole bunch of new shots, with notes!, here.
Oh, and I came here to Korea for some reason or other… uh… oh yeah, school and research. Here’s the view from my office at the Kyujanggak at Seoul National University (Seoul Daehakkyo or Seouldae for short).
