Good thing we had lots of food though, because after breakfast we went for a hike with June, and headed up the mountain behind where her parents live.
It was another beautiful sunny day, and because it was a Sunday there were quite a few locals out on the trail.
Some kind of festival for the local high school. They offered us food and water, and even a ticket to win a bicycle! We wanted to get back to visit with June's family though, so we didn't hang around.
At the top of Goseongsan Mountain looking down on the city of Gimcheon.
Ruth, enjoying the view.
Back at the house, we visited for a couple of hours. June and her brother Kevin both speak very good English, but her mom only speaks a few words (better than our Korean though!) and her dad speaks no English at all. Kevin's girlfriend Min jeong understands more than she lets on, but she's shy trying to speak it. Anyhow, lots of translating going on as we had conversations.
June, Kevin, Ruth, Min jeong, Kevin, Soon-hee, Yeol-hee.
Okay, funny face everyone! (I don't think June's dad understood the instructions!)
June's boyfriend Park made the drive down to pick us up. It's only about two and a half hours one way, but the ride back took almost 4 hours because of the heavy traffic heading back into Seoul.
Gimcheon back to Seoul.
So, now we're back in the big city of Seoul for the next three days. Not sure what's on the agenda for today. I think we'll just relax for the morning and then go out exploring this afternoon.
