busan and inje, on film.
doesn't the first photo look familiar? ;)
inje is about 2 hours from seoul by bus, i don't know much about it, but it's a beautiful place. we went white-water rafting there, down a blue-green river flanked by deep green hills.
busan is the second largest city in korea, and 3 hours from seoul by train. the pace of life there is slower, it was a nice change from seoul. there was an art exhibition being held along one of the beaches there, it was pretty cool.
this week is midterm exam week for me, which means that i'm actually studying for the first time this semester (have i mentioned that i love being on exchange? haha).
since i can't travel, i've been visiting new places through photographs instead: hibika, a blog where hiki and ulrika post lovely photos of sweden and japan, and abby try again, where amazing photos of austin, texas, can be found.

chewing gum, sugar cubes, an advertisement for a gig, a grocery bag - just a few examples of the quirky & lovely packaging that can be found here!
i can't believe it's been more than a month since i came to korea, soon my exchange will be half over :( on the bright side, even after a month, there are still so many new things to be seen and done here. this tuesday i'll be attending a soccer match between korea & japan that promises to be super exciting, i can't wait!
