we started dan's trip in south korea with a stop at a folk village with my friend hazel. but with the rainy weather there wasn't much going on so we didn't stay very long.
a nice japanese couple on holiday took our picture. they had been jumping from shelter to shelter like us, and decided to brave the rain to see the hidden garden since i had said it was so beautiful. and yes, i am completely soaked through. the umbrella was simply to keep rain off my eyes so i could see.
ok, it was time to get on the train and get out of seoul. turns out, it was the largest rainfall in about 100 years. . . and shortly after we were back in ansan the trains shut down for a while. this here is a set of normal stairs we passed on the way to the train.
so, dan and i figured that this was the guy that runs the archery bit at the fortress. like all family gathering holidays, he got sick of being around home, jumped ship and came to the range to shoot off a few arrows. he was an amazing shot.
afterward dan and i headed back home for a friendly dinner gathering.
