So Koreans celebrate Thanksgiving as well, called Chusok. It occurs a little earlier, we had 5 days in late September. After only 3 weeks of work, I decided I wasn't quite ready to have another big vacation, so I stayed near Seoul. I had just settled into my apartment the first day of the holidays, so I wanted a bit of time to get used to my new digs.
I did manage to have one expedition. Bukansan, which is one of the more famous mountains around Seoul. It took about an hour to get there by subway and bus, and I climbed it with my co-workers Tom (who was wearing dress shoes since his boxes had not yet arrived) and Tony. Some parts are so steep that you have to practically pull yourself up the rock!
