Brenda's apt; I think I was in a rush to get to the bus stop so I didn't shoot from the better vantage point, but as I said, she's always there.
Looking to the right was the sea, always soothing.
Tons of tents within these trees.
Jeju Olle Trail is a way for people much fitter than me to walk the entire island. It's a series of connected trails and parts of my daily walks coincided with parts of the trail. This sign helps you know you're on the right path.
Ribbons on the building at right.
the fan culture center in Jeonju, and loved this piece in the permanent exhibit part of the hall, a piece by Eom Ju-won (1938–2004), who was a provincial ICPH in North Jeolla Province of making fans, designated in 1997.

The son's work. Again, the bats!
On the way home, I saw this cat, who clearly OWNS the entire area. It will sit in spots that are directly in the path of people and not move an inch, while all the kids run down the stairs and walk around. I have a lot to learn from this creature. Meanwhile, I am jealous of everyone here and back home planting diligently, including the folks in Virginia at Oak Spring Garden Foundation. One of their farmers, Caitlin, had interviewed me last summer during my residency, and posted her insights here.
Today was my 10th dentist visit in Korea and hopefully my last for this trip, but you never know, so I might have to visit one more time in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed that the worst is over! Why so many posts all at once?

I haven't done this kind of work in a long time and hope my body is up to it. Here's to the final 30 days.
