winter hiking

This is for those of you who have been wondering what I've been doing since Thanksgiving. Much of my free time between November and February was spent either hiking with Mr. Son or making my own hiking equipment on the sewing machine I bought.

Generally, Koreans like to take along lots of great food for lunch during these hikes. In these particular pictures, we were having steak and scotch whiskey.

Also, you might be wondering about the picture of two Korean girls... the guys in the local hiking club usually like to hang out with a group of doctors and nurses from one of Gangneung's largest hospitals. For some reason, when the group of them gets drunk, they try to hook me up with the girl on the right. Even if I am not around, they will drunk-dial me to tell me that she misses me. Well, its nice to know that my friends are thinking of me!
