A Walk Around Our Neighborhood 20.Mar.15

sunny 68 °F

Last Friday was a beautiful day, here in Maegok-dong, Gwangju. Alexis and I went for a walk around town, before she had to be at work that afternoon. We wanted to capture some of the typical sights seen on our streets.

The tailgating you see here is one of the many “mobile” fry shacks serving up delicious on-the-go snacks around our neighborhood, and all over Gwangju, too. Most don’t move, and some couldn’t with a rollback! All of the produce, clothing, flowers, and seafood seen here were located along what we’ve termed “restaurant road”. It’s the main thoroughfare in our small little community.

And, you may notice that Alexis isn’t browsing through a designer boutique, but a series of E-Z UPs on the sidewalk. That’s one way to increase foot traffic in your shop.

As spring is here, we also snapped some photos of the bright, emerging color. And, the honey bees already hard at work.

For those that have heard us describe our humble abode, we wanted to share a photo of our "villa overlooking an ancient vineyard”. Now, you know the reason for the chuckles, all 184 sq.ft. of them!
