The day started early, in Hapjeong. We met up and then went to Itaewon. Itaewon was semi-productive, I did get some calling cards and did go to a travel agent about flights home. I will renew my contract at my school, so I will get two weeks to go home. I am a bit excited about the prospect, to be honest.
We then walked to the next subway stop, Hangangjin- The walk was quite pleasant. I usually stay in the Itaewon area, and I was quite happy to see where the Leem art museum was even if we weren’t going to go in. At Hangangjin, we went to a foreign supermarket, and then we were off to the flower city.
Flower city is near Yangjae station. Near is the operative word. It was quite a trek, although a very pleasant one. There were lots and lots of trees, a good thing because today was quite warm. We decided that the US really needed more city parks and more green spaces in the cities.
The Flower City and there is a big sign that said “Flower City” wasn’t huge, but it was beautiful. My friend didn’t find the sun-lamp she desperately wanted for her dying tomato plants, but I found some great small pots, a few small flower plants, and a wonderful time amidst beautiful flowers:
A beautiful fountain:
A fountain I want:
Here are some more pictures for your enjoyment:
And here are the flowers I snagged:
Once the indoor garden is complete I promise to give pictures of it as well.
And because everyone needs to see a cactus with a fuzzy hat:
There is something about spending a day among flowers that is most relaxing.
