I can't believe it's been over a month since we last wrote on here. I'm sure Rebs has a blog she's written somewhere; she just hasn't posted it yet. This semester has been filled to the brim with organizing and preparations for school and climbing trips. Just about every weekend we have gone away to different climbing crags around the beautiful Korean countryside. Two weekends ago, the weather was a bit wet. That weather turned out to be perfect for the project that some we and some friends decided to do. We built some steps up a steep, eroding trail at Yongseo Pokpo 영서폭포 (Yong-saw waterfalls). It was really fun working together in the rain and having the joy of seeing our finished product at the end of the day. I look forward to going back and seeing how our work stands against the test of time.
I've been doing a bit of reading lately. I'd call myself a sporadic reader, but when I get a book that I like, it's more fascinating than any TV show or movie. I love movies, but a good book has so many more details. Such is the case with The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexandre Dumas. I know the book is centuries old, but to me that is part of its appeal. It shows a glimpse into history while telling the story. And if you have a good imagination, it's better than any screenplay.
