The last time I hiked up Gwanak mountain was in 1994 just after I'd joined LG International and the company had a Saturday outing. It was the first mountain I'd hiked up in Korea and I remember thinking that the experience was unbelievably exhausting and I never wanted to do something that difficult again…
But thanks to having had many more hiking experiences in Korea since then, yesterday's climb was surprisingly easy…

Enjoying a late lunch at the foot of Kwanak mountain. I was not 100% sober in this photo…. having enjoyed several cups of 동동주.
And finally dinner back in Ansan!
