So we hiked a mountain! Folks in Gwangju are coo coo for hiking, especially the older ones. They are completely geared up in the cutest outfits. They have walking sticks too and honestly they were pretty fit. I was like huffing and puffing my way up the mountain and these old folks were just passing us no problem. It was kind of adorable.
Here we are, hiking:
p.s. when we left our apartment, we had to walk through adorable groups of college kids (we were staying on campus with our friend Su, who teaches there) and we felt pretty embarrassed...I personally had on cargo-y shorts with tennis shoes and a tank top and back pack. Summer had her Keens on. Nuff said.
We didn't make it all the way to the top because of time constraints, but we did get some spectacular views.
It's pretty steep also. In all, we hiked about 3 hours up the mountain and then about 1.5 hours down.
