boseong green tea fields

On the following Sunday in Boseong after the Gwangju Biennale, we hopped on a bus to check out the green tea fields there. Well worth the admission and hike for a wonderful view of perfectly manicured green tea brush. When we went, it started off with a drizzle that later transitioned into a full on downpour. It made for a wet adventure, but the rain and resulting mist made the fields all the more beautiful and tranquil.

Slippery and muddy trails on the way down made it a little precarious for a klutz like me

Soaked, with or without an umbrella
Curious about these burial mounds in the middle of the fields and why they are there?

A trip to the green tea fields wouldn't be complete without some soft serve green tea icecream!

And here are a few random snapshots from around the small town of Boseong.

Breakfast
Machines used to grind red chilli peppers into flakes
Some Boseong Konglish for you: "Fersonal Stylis Club"
I call this "Pile of Junk in the Rain No. 468"

Daegu snaps are next!
