Sokcho and Such

December 29, 2009

So I spent Christmas at a cabin with a bunch of friends. I won’t elaborate on my weekend, as it is too full of inside jokes, the kind when you spend 72+ hours with a group of ten people. I will say that I visited Waterpia, Sokcho’s water park, which contains an outdoor hot springs! Nice, huh? It’s kind of weird to enter a place in full on winter gear and then run out of it, with only your swimsuit on (even if you’re jumping into 40 degree Celsius water). Since I didn’t have my camera obviously, I drew a picture.

Once, I aspired to write a webcomic about my Korean adventures. As you can see, the truth caught up with me, I actually cannot draw. Sorry for forgetting your arms, Jung.

On the way back it started to snow. It was a five hour bus trip in total, though I was kind of perplexed when three and a half hours had passed and we had just got to Seorak mountain… especially since Seorak is in Sokcho (or close enough near it). About an hour later we were in Seoul. I’m still trying to figure that one out.

Obligatory wilderness picture.

In other news, it snowed shitloads over the weekend. How much April, you ask? Why, up a soju bottle label’s worth!

I also like this picture because it conveys the deep seated existential bleakness of an urban winter. Oh and the LOLs it brings.

Happy New Year, folks!
