This weekend we finally made it to Suseong Moht (Suseong Lake). We left pretty early and stopped at E-mart to buy a backpack and pick up some lunch. Then we got on a bus and headed downtown where we got on the subway, took the subway to Beomeo station, got in a taxi and finally arrived at Suseong Lake. This was a much less painful experience than the last time we made a trip that far (the lake is just a little bit further than Ariana Hotel). The lake (man-made) was really pretty since the trees, bushes and flowers around it are blooming. Everyone has been saying "Korea is a beautiful country". Well, from the time we arrived in the middle of February up until now, it did not look so beautiful. Everything was dead, dreary, and just ick. But now, with the trees and flowers blooming it is starting to look very beautiful indeed. I love watching the area where we live transform a little more everyday. Cherry Blossoms seem to grow everywhere here.

Crash landing?When we looked at google earth before we left for the lake we were like, "@(#*^$!, why is there a plane there? We were thinking, ok, maybe the plane just took off from Daegu airport. Incorrect. This full size plane just hangs out down there. Apparently it is a restaurant.
What a mess...I know this picture looks awful. That's why I took it. There was so much stuff all in one place with the best being the ridiculous plane restaurant in the background.
