Last Thursday, I went hiking with some of the teachers at my school.
It was the day of the School Festival, which is a big deal because allthe students show off their arts and crafts that they have made in their afterschool clubs. By 11:00 am, though, all the teachers and students are free to leave. At 2:00, it was time for the hike. I thought we were going to carpool somewhere to go hiking, but really, all we do is walk out behind our school.
About 20 teachers decided to hike up Mt. Gwanaksan, which is directly behind my school. At first, we walked some steep trails, but it was okay. However, when we had to start climbing up rocks and I had to use my hands, I thought the whole hike thing had gone too far. I am a walker. (If that.) However, all the teachers seemed to love it. It must be a Korea thing. I did have some amazing views though, which are below. All the people in the pictures are teachers from my school.
