I am discovering my new hometown and finding that I really dig the place I am in. Seoul is a kick-ass city. There is so much to do, there is so much to see! It's not just industrial, it's made to be beautiful and structured to dissipate some of the pains of urban living. Nature isn't very far away, spas are dirt cheap, and the fashion is unbelievable. I love the styles here. I have made a few friends who have taken me out, shown me around, and gone touristing with me. It's been a lot of fun! I don't have anything to complain about really, though I am still finding my own rhythms here. I do feel a bit homesick every now and then, I missed my sister's 21st birthday, and I wished I could have been there for my family when my grandfather passed away. And, as the culture shock wears off, and simple acts are still just plain difficult because of the language and culture barrier, it is sometimes wearisome and lonely.
But then I think about how everything in life can turn around completely in just one day and that there is so much potential ahead, just waiting for someone to grab onto, that I get a little excited to find out what that may be, and head for the door.
Here are some photos of a hike I went on.
