To Alexis' family, and whoever else it may concern; I never promised her a rose garden... But, I did take her to one!

The annual Rose Festival takes place at the beautiful Chosun University. For the majority of the year the rose garden is a quiet place for students to study, rest, or meet up with friends. However, for a couple weeks every summer, families and couples come out in droves to see the roses. The garden contains over 150 different varieties of roses. We wanted to share a few pictures of our favorites.

On our way out, we noticed a tree perfect for a photo.

We spent the rest of the day walking around downtown Gwangju. We got dinner, then were headed home when we noticed lotus lanterns still decorating a temple. The decorations remained after the celebration of Buddha's birthday.
