Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years

Living in Wonju South Korea, These Many Long Years: Version 2.0!

Sunday, September 23, 2012


Today the bunch of us headed out to the mountains for the great chestnut hunt of 2012.

We hiked up near Geumdae valley, which contains a large number of huge chestnut trees.  I climbed up hills, a few trees, all in the quest for more and more delicious chestnuts.

At one point I knocked a nice bunch out of a tree, but one of the them hit the youngest on the arm.  She developed a nasty rash; who knew you could have an allergic reaction to chestnuts?  She was alright however, just dealing with some minor discomfort.

We should have gone yesterday.  We did collect a nice pile, but most of them are a bit small.  It seemed nearly every old couple we passed was walking out of the valley carrying large bags of huge fat nuts. 

Still, half a grocery bag full isn't bad.  We saved at least ten thousand won, man!  And it was nice to get out and walk around.

Time for some more internetz.
