Autumn in the Land of Morning Calm

Arriving to Korea during an extended winter, experiencing a short spring and then suffering through a monsoon summer, autumn has been the only relief so far.   The most rain comes in the form of leaves falling from the trees, and the chilly breezes are welcome in stuffy classrooms.   Having never truly experienced an autumn with changing leaves, the colors seem so bright everywhere.  I jump on crunchy leaves like a child.  I look for leaf piles to roll into in an effort to make up for lost time.

During my recent roaming around Seoul I’ve snapped some pictures of the scenery.   If the leaves stay like this for longer, there may be more to come.
