In the Winds

This last weekend, we had the pleasure of hosting our friends Carmen and David at our house. They live about a 3-hour train ride from here, and stayed for the long Independence Day weekend. We packed in full days, going to a few different beaches, hiking a nearby mountain, riding 45 subway minutes for a fantastic Indian buffet, and visiting our new church. It was delightful to be with people who knew us from “before,” and both Eric and I ended the weekend feeling encouraged by these two. Below are some pictures from our hike up Geumjeongsan…

This is a great, albeit smoggy, view of Pusan, with the large Gwanganli bridge in the background. Our area of Pusan (Haeundae) is just to the "left" of this picture, but these highrises could just as well be ours.

The Adequate Wall of Korea.

Along this mountain hike, there are 4 "Gates" that were once used to defend against invaders. This is the North Gate near the top. Super misty and windy.
