The most beautiful parts of this area are outside or on the edge of Chungju city.
Resting on the plains along the lake.
Bibimbap and dongdongju at a roadside restaurant.
And back in Chungju, a crane stalking minnows in the river that goes through the city.
Bibimguksu, cold noodles with spicy pepper paste, with the most sesame seeds I've ever gotten on anything ever. My favourite summer food.
And my battered and bruised leg from clambering up the fortress wall. A painful memento from a weekend of mountains. But in good news, I only have two days of school this week (for exams) and once I finish marking and submit my grades I'll be heading off to Cambodia! I applied for an e-visa and already received it. They said it would only take three days or less. I applied for it on Friday, and assumed they didn't count the weekend. But obviously they do, as I received it today, a Sunday. Now I'm all set.
