My Weekend of Parking (It’s not what you think)

With a desire to get out of my 80 degree apartment this weekend, I decided I would check out some of Seoul’s parks.  By Seoul I really mean within a kilometer or so of my house because I’m too lazy to take the subway.  

Saturday evening was spent climbing up a random hill close to my house and then getting lost on the way back home.  It was the first bit of nature I’ve been in since I went to Busan three weeks ago and it was lovely. And I was covered in sweat about 2 minutes in.

Seeing as this adventure went so well I decided to try a different park this evening.  I live close to the Han river and never really noticed that right across from me there are two large hills that are actually really amazing parks.  One used to be a golfcourse and the other used to be a landfill.  I checked out the landfill one with a friend and it was even more lovely.  The top of the landfil is leveled and planted with grass.  It’s like being in a high prarie in the middle of one of the largest cities in the world.  I want to live there, and I’m absolutely not doing it justice in my description.  Watch this video, it explains a little better. 

I want to bring everyone I know to this park.  Shauna and Chelsea, get ready!
